Hooray! This project is fully funded

I have the privilege of teaching Kindergarten with a remarkable group of children on a variety of academic levels in a title 1 school. For some learning numbers in kindergarten seems impossible for others simply boring. I would like to make this a task attainable by all and stamp out math boredom once and for all. I have found just the manipulative's to challenge all learners. Counting kits with grids will provide counting and number practice for children. The manipulative's can be used throughout the year as children progress to larger numbers. Adding various manipulative's ensures practice throughout the year without becoming bored with the same toy. The count-a-pig counting kit includes a stamp, mini books, 75 pig counters, labeled counting tubs, and laminated counting cards. Adding more pig counters, stamps for recording work, counting grids, and counting cards creates a center to be used by a small group of students. To hold students' interest throughout the year I would like to add ant, elephant, fish, penguin, squirrel, and spider manipulative's. Can these kits stamp out math boredom? You can count on it!
