Mrs. Thomasson from Metropolis IL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A littleBit of This and a Little Bit of That

My students need littleBits slide switches and a littleBits Makey Makey to add to our other littleBits coding and STEAM sets. We also need new pencil sharpeners and a storage container for the littleBits parts.

My Students

A day in my classroom is a day filled with learning, respect, and hard work. My school is in a rural area, and the students that I teach come from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Our class motto is, "In this room, we don't do easy.

We make easy happen through hard work and learning!" I have high expectations for my students and do everything in my ability to help them achieve their goals! I enjoy planning creative lessons and projects as much as my students enjoy working on them!

My Project

I recently had two different projects funded for littleBits coding kits and STEAM kits. My students would like to add a few additional pieces to our kits so that they can do more with the sets. The sets are very useful for having students use their creativity to invent and design new projects. This project also contains a littleBits case for all of the extra parts that we have.

My project was titled a littleBit of This and a Little Bit of That because many times that is what we need.

We are not in need of a big class set of anything but simply need to round out the projects we have already funded. I have added two good pencil sharpeners to our project because we absolutely need something that will work on a consistent daily basis.
