We're Mathematicians, So Count on Us!

Help me give my students an abacus at home so they can have a very good hands-on math learning experience!

My Students

My kindergarten students are so excited to learn and are especially eager to apply their learning through hands-on activities. A large percentage of my classroom students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.

Since kindergarten is sometimes my students' first experience in school, I want to make sure that we provide a solid foundation with lots of rich and meaningful education.

Students in my class are of diverse backgrounds and speak different languages at home. Their English language levels range from beginning to advanced.

Based on our school's statistics, over 85% of our student population comes from a lower socioeconomic status. Unfortunately, socioeconomic status can affect the quality of life as well as the opportunities and privileges given to them. So, at school, we try our best to provide our students with the necessary materials, but the range of needs is very wide.

With that said, equipping students with necessary materials can help give students that rich learning experience and help close gaps.

My Project

Having a strong foundation in math is so important for students! These abaci will be sent home to students so they can have the materials they need to continue learning at home.

Young mathematicians really need a good visual to make learning so much easier!

With their very own abacus, students can use these hands-on math manipulatives to demonstrate their thinking process and deepen their understanding of numbers and operations. What is so great about this abacus is that the beads go all the way to 100, which will be so useful beyond kindergarten. They can continue to use it in first and even second grade! Students are able to use it to skip count by 5s and 10s as well as using it to add and subtract numbers within 100. It makes it so easy to use and easy to understand.
