Ms. Eaton from De Soto KS is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Productive Learning Environment!

Help me give my students Hot Dots interactive learning quizzes for a fun way to practice our math skills. My students also need a timer large enough to see across the room and STEM supplies for projects!

My Students

My students are creative and eager to learn. They soak up every bit of knowledge that they are taught or discover themselves. Despite their unique backgrounds, they come to school and show me that they are ready to learn.

We are a community, and everyone shares a part in our learning.

My classroom is a high energy, student-led place of learning. I consider myself a guide, and my students are the doers.

These kids love to build and invent, especially using technology. We are a Title I school that uses the most of what we have. Our teachers are dedicated to making school a positive and enjoyable place to be.

My Project

Hot Dots are an interactive way to study questions for different subjects. The kids will love the task cards and special Hot Dots pen that will tell them whether their answer is correct or incorrect. Students are able to prepare for large tests in an engaging way with this technology. Hot Dots cards provide a great way to practice needed skills in an enjoyable way.

Hands-on learning in the best form of authentic learning!

Students will be able to create STEAM activities that model a subject learned in class. My 4th graders love being creative and applying artistic talents to unique projects. They also love to play challenging games where they can compete against each other.
