  • My Class Needs math manipulatives and shapes to engage students in 2D & 3D exploration

    Launched November 24th, 2017 Project Deadline February 22nd, 2018
    Classroom Size 18 Students School Size 552 Students

    My Students

    This busy grade 1 classroom is full of varying abilities and needs who love to learn according to their interests. At this present moment, the children have a key interests in constructing, coding, and creating with hands on activities. A key challenge we face as a classroom is having enough manipulatives, especially in the shapes, and geometry units to use cross-curricularlly. Essentially, for this project, the children will learn about 2&3D shapes that surround them in their environment.

    How will this project impact them?

    The students will use the requested resources to enhance hands on learning. I hope to accomplish this goal by using the granted manipulatives benefit math focused activities and to also branch off to different areas of the curriculum. If successful, students will benefit from the hands on learning. Short term benefits will help in the classroom and hopefully benefit my students long term by working on their special awareness and becoming more interested in the world around them. Not only will these manipulates benefit my class, but I will be able to share with my other primary-teaching partners. Donors will impact this grade one class to help benefit our math class time and engage students with hands on learning. I know that this project will enhance our team building and cooperative communication skills, while making math fun and engaging.
