I am a Kindergarten teacher on the West Side of Chicago. I work in an area where the students may come to school with little or no basic skills. I am writing this proposal for a Math Rods Kindergarten Kit, a Math Mat Challenge Game and a set of two color counters. The math rods kit would be used as a center to help enhance the skills that are being taught, by giving the students the chance to do hands-on activities. The math mat challenge game would be used as a circle time activity. My students like to do activities that require movement and the math mat allows this. The mat allows the students to learn how to count, add, and subtract by using various skills. Two of the skills that would be used are listening and problem solving. The two color counters will be used to help me teach my students how to add and subtract. All these materials will give my students the opportunity to work at his or her own pace and at a level that is comfortable for him or her. These materials will give my students the opportunity to become life-long learners.
