I am a first grade English Language Development teacher at an elementary school in the heart of San Francisco's Chinatown district. The majority of my students are second language learners, which means they do not speak English at home. Because of their limited English exposure, my students learn the best when they're able to hold, see and play with objects and use their English. Yet we lack the correct materials. Teaching mathematical concepts and terminology is difficult without hands-on materials. What I need to teach my students are 3D geometric figures, such as cones, pyraminds, cubes, and spheres. Currently, we have one set of each of the 3D figures, provided by the school district. However, some math lessons require students to use multiple 3D figures and we have only one set. I know with a greater supply of hands-on math materials, my students will be successful and math will be more exciting. I am asking for ten sets of 3D geometric figures to enable my students to work in pairs with adequate supplies.
