Mrs. Iddings from Lexington VA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Class Pet & Collaboration!

My students need to be strong critical thinkers and problem solvers. Board games and a class pet (robot) will provide the opportunities needed for students to hone their skills!

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and excited to tackle the learning opportunities in our classroom! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging activities and challenges that allow them to think outside the box and collaborate to find solutions!

My student's excitement for learning is matched by my excitement to give them access to the skills they will need to navigate their futures.

As children of the 21st century, they need to be prepared to use a variety of tools to engage their world.

My Project

My 4th-grade students start each day with a curiosity to learn and an excitement to push each other to grow. The board games selected are designed for interaction and skill building. My students will learn patience, academics, and problem solving as a community through their play.

Othello (strategy & spatial reasoning ), Apples to Apples (expanding vocabulary while navigating choice & conflict resolution), Dash and Dot (our class pets who will teach coding and collaboration while building students STEM skills), are just a few of the amazing supplies I am asking for today that will help my students build skills and confidence in our classroom.

My students push me as an educator to find innovative ways for them to connect to our classroom and the world, all in an effort to keep up with their curiosity, energy, and thirst for learning.
