Mrs. Pestick from Mechanicsvlle VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Face-to-Face Materials

Help me give my students access to a wide range of materials needed to learn on a daily basis, all while staying safe and socially distant.

My Students

My students are fifth graders with a wide range of interest, hobbies, and talents. These students come from a variety of backgrounds. They are excited learners who are ready to be back in the classroom. My students typically learn best with hands-on activities and lessons. I love to see my students fully engaged with activities that captivate them from start to finish.

My Project

The 2020-2021 school year will be different for all students nationwide. Our county is offering for students to come to school face-to-face 100% of the time. With this, students will not be able to share materials needed to stay fully engaged throughout the day. This project gives each student in my class a bin of materials and manipulatives just for personal use. This will help students learn because they will still be able to have hands on learning while staying safe and not sharing with other students. Each student will keep their bin with them at school and can take them home each day to have the materials at home if needed.
