My Students

Kindergarten is such a fun age to teach because they have so much love for learning and look forward to coming to school every day. My class is very sweet and work hard to do their "kindergarten best!" I teach in a school that is very diverse with a high population of students who are English Language Learners. My school is an amazing place to be. All teachers love their job and want to make every child succeed! . My students are learning math skills that are crucial to their success beyond Kindergarten. The materials that are being requested will ensure that the learning is authentic,appropriate, direct, and engaging.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our Kindergarten classroom by helping children to get their brains thinking and cooperatively working together.

These math manipulative will help my students focus on their future, despite the language and socio-economic challenges that they are facing daily.

My Project

Kindergarten students learn best by doing. As a kindergarten teacher, I have seen this to be true time and time again. I want my students to learn as much as they can while having fun!

Using this materials I will can to create additional math centers to help my students apply what we have been learning in class while working independently or with a partner during our daily math center fun!.

They will be able to deepen their understanding on counting and place value concepts, and they will can touch while count. . The Operation Folder Game will help to learn numbers sense for the different levels of learners in our classroom. Each child will be able to be challenged and learn every single day!
