Math manipulatives for kindergarteners

Math manipulatives for kindergarteners

Dear East Palo Alto Kids Foundation,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your recent donation to my class. With the current grant, I was able to buy math manipulatives as well as add to the class’ building centers. I have found that both additions to my classroom activities have increased social interaction as well as helped children gain a better understanding of math concepts such as addition and number quantities. I cannot thank you enough for your generous donation.

Field trip to the Hall of Justice and Stanford

Field trip to the Hall of Justice and Stanford

My 8th and 7th grade students in the Young Interpreters class benefited from the grant in several ways, but specifically by observing, listening and learning from the interpreters at Stanford Hospital and at the Hall of Justice in San Jose. These experiences educated them in how to use their bilingual abilities to succeed in school and college. All the students, parents, and myself are very grateful for your monetary support that makes possible these educational field trips.
