Mr. Gore from Seattle WA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging 2nd Grade Scholars in Math and Literacy!

My students need seat sacks, chess sets, books, and a wide range of educational games and materials to engage and support them in their math and literacy learning.

My Students

I am so lucky to be working with such an amazing, diverse, driven group of second grade scholars. These students are in one of the lowest-income schools in the state (92% qualify for free and reduced lunch) and face many challenges both in and out of the classroom, but every day they rise to those challenges and excel as learners and community members.

My students are energetic, caring, and creative.

They support one another all day toward becoming their best selves and stretch toward their highest potentials. They are the next generation of doctors, teachers, engineers, entrepreneurs, and artists. While we do well with the resources we have, these students deserve all the same opportunities and tools that kids at much wealthier schools enjoy.

My Project

My scholars will use many of these games and materials on a daily basis, including the whiteboard markers (that will replace the woefully terrible ones we've been using!), sand timers, and "seat sacks." The games will energize my students throughout the year, supporting them to meet grade level math and literacy expectations.

My scholars have incredible capacities to learn math and word encoding literacy skills and having engaging, fun, educational games and resources to support them can have a truly amazing positive impact on their learning.

By donating to this project, you will not only help to improve and increase student engagement and focus, but you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
