Touch Math For Exceptional Children

The cost of TouchMath's First Grade Collection is $1293, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I would like request funding for Touch Math - First Grade Collection. I teach Exceptional Children at an K-5 elementary school. My students' grades range from PreKindergarten to third grade. The area is very rural, and funding is very limited. Over 75% of the children receive reduced or free lunch. Several of my students are having great difficulty with number recognition. One child is repeating Kindergarten and can only identify numbers 1 and 2. The other child is half a year into Kindergarten and can only identify 1, 2, and 3. The Touch Math First Grade Collection will provide a visual and tactile method that will enable my students to learn their numbers. I also foresee that Touch Math will be needed in order for these students to do addition and subtraction. The First Grade Collection is being requested instead of the Kindergarten Collection because I think I can make it work for several grade levels. The materials necessary for this project is the Touch Math First Grade Collection. Currently, the Touch Math materials will be used with two students; however, with the population of children I teach, I anticipate being able to use the materials with other students for many years. These students are not able to learn to identify numbers in the usual way. They need more help, and they need something different. Touch Math will provide the help they need. Thank you so very much for your consideration.
