Ms. Canady from Bear DE is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Center Help

My students need a teaching easel, a chart stand, phonics games and other center supplies to help engage them in the learning process and increase their attention and focus. It is my goal motivate them to practice higher-level critical thinking skills through centers.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to make a difference in my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

I have a diverse group of learners.

Some of my students are creative, active, artistic and eager to explore. They like to move, they love to read and they enjoy hands-on activities for reading. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth as individuals. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experiences during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire my students and to help motivate them on their path to academic success.

My Project

A lot of my students struggle with comprehension. They enjoy learning by doing and having manipulatives as they learn. This project will provide my students the opportunity to learn while doing. We need a teaching easel, a chart stand, phonics games and other center supplies. These items will provide my students with the opportunity to take ownership of their own learning without the teacher. My students can actively work with their cooperative groups on skills that were taught and use those skills and strategies in small groups for vocabulary building, completion of graphic organizers and shared discussions. There are not enough materials for students to work in small groups. This will solve that problem.
