Mrs. Williamson from Pass Christian MS is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Everybody Makes Mistakes!

Help me give my students materials that allow them to make mistakes and keep going. The Expo markers and table spots will allow them to solve problems and easily erase.

My Students

Kindergarten is the most magical experience a student endures while encountering the journey of education. Everything is so new and exciting. My sweet scholars enjoy making new discoveries, identifying their passion for learning, and participating in engaging learning experiences. I want my students to know that I believe in them, and they can do anything in this world.

My kindergartners come from very diverse backgrounds, but have one bold characteristic in common...they are full of life.

My students always come ready to learn and leave showing excitement for the next day.

My Project

Boom! That's the sound that I heard when my classroom ipad hit the floor without a case. My sweet kinder friend was terrified he would be reprimanded, but it was an accident. Kindergarten is full of accidents, mistakes, and learning experiences.

I want to create a classroom culture where students are comfortable with messing up; because mistakes mean you are learning.

I will use the whiteboard markers and table spots to provide my students with their personal space to problem solve and easily erase. If funded, I will use the big erasers so that each child can have their own rather than sharing. Last, I will finally protect our only classroom ipad with the heavy duty case!
