Brockbank Elementary – Amberly Kariuki Receives Grant
Amberly Kariuki, fourth-grade teacher at Brockbank Elementary, said, “This grant will be used to buy a multiplication Wrap Ups math kit to be used in fourth grade. The Wrap Ups will help students learn their multiplication facts, which are imperative that they know for the math they will be doing from here on out. Being able to physically manipulate an object in their hands, while orally reciting the math facts, will help make connections in their brains and help them remember and memorize the facts. The CD of math fact raps will add another modality of learning for those who learn musically. We are excited to be able to have enough to actually make in impact in fourth grade!”
