Strengthening Math Skills with Fun!

My students need more fun activities and games to assist them in mastering the fundamentals needed to be successful in the future.

My Students

Remember wanting to be a doctor, engineer, or a chemist in grade school? Well, being strong in mathematics is the key to success in these fields and instilling that love in elementary school required fun games!

The students in my classroom light my face up everyday as they are growing into preteens right before my eyes!

My group of ten year-olds are very inquisitive and they love to learn. Next year, they will be entering middle school and currently many are interested in applying for Science and Math Middle Schools, as many love those subjects most of all.

My Project

As we venture into more complicated mathematical concepts, the mastery of the fundamental skills are essential in being successful. The assortment of math games that I am requesting will assist in providing resources for more fun math workshops in the classroom and more academic options to include in the classroom.

The donations will assist my students in strengthening the multiplication facts, converting fractions to decimals, order of operation problems, and even applying all of their math skills in solving real world problems!

This is a priceless gift to award these budding fifth graders.
