Ms. Dull from Washington DC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building Friendships Inside!

Help me give my students joy during the winter months when outside activities are not possible. These board games and art materials will provide us with chances to play together.

My Students

Every day my students come to school excited to learn in a safe environment. While their lives outside of school can be tough, they understand the importance of learning how to read and learning more about the world.

My school is located in Washington, DC.

My students are from a low-income community where many of their parents are nonreaders. My students must be successful in school in order to create a future for themselves. Change happens here, and it must happen for my students.

My Project

The board games and art materials I am requesting will provide my students with an authentic space to build friendships and work together. In the winter months it can get very stuffy when forced to stay inside.

My hope is to add activities into our day so students can still play games and work together like they do during outside recess even when we can't get outside.

I think my students will be excited to have new materials and games that make them think and support cooperative discussions and decision making. I'm hopeful that students will be motivated to complete their work so reward time can be spent with these fun materials!
