Mrs. Lambert from Fort Worth TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Year Teacher Building an Inspiring and Motivating Classroom

My students need storage containers to hold their center materials and teach responsibility and organization. Legos and manipulatives encourage creativity and build problem-solving skills in a variety of themes and experiences.

My Students

I teach three-year-old little loves in a half-day Charter school. My students are all ESL and/or disadvantaged. They come from homes that don't necessarily teach responsibility, they don't typically have much organization in their lives, and they aren't given many opportunities to questions things and experiments.

My classroom will promote innovation, provide safety and organization, and encourage responsibility and self-sufficiency in a way that their homes may not.

My students will be able to rely on their classroom as a place of joy and creativity with the materials provided.

My Project

The charter school where I am employed has limited resources and funding, which leaves the teachers to supply their classrooms with some basic materials, like storage and center materials. By having boxes and buckets for materials, centers look and feel more approachable, which will encourage the children to use the materials.

While storage makes centers approachable and organized, blocks and Legos can be adapted to many different themes and activities which makes them materials that can be used all year long.

Building blocks encourage and build creativity, problem-solving, sorting, planning, and adapting.

The materials I have asked for all help create an organized, child-friend environment that will promote self-sufficiency and innovation.
