Mrs. Utterback from Elkhart IN is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Center Time is Fun!

Help me give my students reading and math centers. The multiplication center will help my students develop their math facts. The reading comprehension center is very beneficial for my students who need extra practice with reading fluency.

My Students

I teach at an inner city school that is a STEAM Academy. The students and staff are what makes our school great! My students are amazing individuals with lots of energy! All of my students are excited to come to school and try to do their very best academically and socially.

Each child in my class deserves an opportunity to learn and grow in my classroom.

I hope to provide new materials for them to use in the classroom and spark their learning!

My Project

These centers will help my students interact with each other and learn their reading and math skills in a fun way. Each center will help students learn their multiplication and reading comprehension all while enjoying the hands on experiences that these centers provide.

My students will be able to work in groups with these centers and practice skills that they need to succeed.

Each student will have the opportunity to use the center games and explore new ideas.

Every day, I have my class work in centers and practice skills that they are learning. With the use of these center activities, I believe students will make huge gains in their academics.
