Mrs. Murphy from Buffalo NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Academic Centered Learning in Centers

Help me give my students more resources and tools to help facilitate learning. My students spend much of their day in multiple center areas that are focused on the skills they need to learn.

My Students

Have you ever had 18 people give everything they have to give - day in and day out? Have you felt the unconditional love 18 students give towards their teacher and peers and have a love of learning and want to academically do their best each and every day?

Welcome to my amazing classroom, located in the inner city of Buffalo.

We are part of Buffalo Public Schools. and our school has a large percentage of students from low-income homes, and we have the second-largest percentage of English as a New Language Learners in the district. As their teacher, I need to go above and beyond to give all my students hands-on, engaging, exciting resources so they can academically strive!

DonorsChoose helps make academics easier with educational materials that will give my students more resources for learning. I am thankful for this program, and the smiles it will give my students daily!

My Project

Preschoolers need to be able to explore learning using a variety of manipulative in ELA and Math to grow their brains. We have exploratory centers every day. This is a time when students have the opportunity to choose which centers to play with and spend time completing activities that are meaningful to them.

Enriching materials from the alphabet alligators to the owl counters will help create fun and engaging centers for our little learners to help facilitate their learning.

All the materials I have chosen will support the different subject areas being taught in Pre-K!
