Mrs. Gustafson from Norway MI is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Distance Learning with Style

Help me give my students each a stylus, cleaning cloths, and postcards, that I can mail to their homes so that they can continue their hard work as distance learners.

My Students

My kids are learning math on an online platform called iReady on their school issued iPads. We use Google Classroom as well and I can see that they are working hard and trying to make the best of their new learning environment.

I would like to make it easier for my students to do their work on their iPads with a stylus.

They deserve a reward for doing their best and I know it will help them in all of their classes as well.

My Project

I would like to send each of my students a stylus so that they can continue their distance learning on their iPads with ease. I know having a stylus makes using their devices, and getting their work done, a little easier and they deserve it for their hard work during this tough transitional time. My students have been doing their best to learn their math lessons at home. They could use a tool that gives them the chance to do even better and that is a reward for their efforts because this is new to them too. The stamps and envelopes will help me safely send them each a stylus so they can continue to progress in their studies, not just in my class, but in all their classes.
