Ms. Ryan from Philadelphia PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students math manipulatives such as Unifix cubes, counting bears, color links, and connecting ten frame trays.
"Do we have to leave?" Our students are funny, compassionate and imaginative children that enjoy exploring new skills and developing their literacy skills. They attend an elementary school in the Kensington section of Northern Philadelphia.
The room buzzes throughout the day as they laugh, sing and share with their peers.
They are a thoughtful, loving and hardworking bunch, excited to learn and grow. While they are motivated by their dreams and engaged by the opportunities presented to them, due to economic challenges within the community, school and district, our resources are limited. As their teacher, I struggle to provide sufficient and enriching supplies that will support holistic learning. However, at our school, we are resourceful and do with what we have, but our students deserve and require more.
My class is truly an eager, inquisitive, and energetic bunch. They desire to learn and show perseverance in the face of trials both in and outside of the classroom.
The materials I am requesting are manipulatives to help develop their concrete understanding of foundational math skills.
They cannot achieve 3rd grade level math skills, when they have not yet mastered skills like counting by 1s, 2s, 5s, or fluently adding and subtracting with 10. Providing these resources will help our students create their own understanding by manipulating numbers using the counters, and using durable and colorful guided math activities. Help my students engage more deeply and in a more bright and cheerful way by giving today.
