Mrs. Cuevas from Madera CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Why Do I Need to Know This?

Help me give my students the visual support to promote a deeper understanding of math. The Flash Discovery Cans will begin my manipulative library of materials to be used within the math lessons.

My Students

My students? How can I describe them? Let's see...they are respectful and very mindful of each other. If a student needs help, they are eager to be the one to make things better. They are kids. They play and work with each other in and out of the classroom.

Each morning the students are welcomed with a smile and a (virtual) handshake.

They are learning to self-monitor and build their self-confidence. Building academic self-confidence is the goal of our classroom, within a low-income district with free meal service for breakfast and snacks for all students. Students are encouraged to search out their answers to their questions and reflect on what they have learned.

My Project

The Math Discovery Cans will help add my instruction during out distance learning time. I will be able to use the materials from the cans during math lessons. The students will be able to take notes using the graph paper while at home.

The magnetic graph paper is an excellent tool for instruction.

The magnetic graph paper will help in virtual instruction and traditional instruction (when that resumes). I will be able to introduce graphing coordinates clearly with the enlarged paper. Students once again utilizing their own graph paper wherever they may be.

All the materials requested are easily used with each other in the classroom or digitally using a document camera/computer camera. These materials will begin the building up of math manipulatives in a new classroom and a new grade level for me.
