Ms. Garcia from Fresno CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Full STEAM Ahead in Kinder!

Help me give my students a boombox, headphones, and jackbox so they can listen to nonfiction books about science. Manipulatives to ignite their curiosity in engineering, and a microscope and other materials to foster their development of STEAM.

My Students

Every year I fall in love with my kindergartners and want to provide them the best learning experience they can have. I want to instill in them the love for learning through exploring and experimenting by giving them opportunities that they wouldn't otherwise have.

These children come from a Title I school where 100% of them are eligible to receive a free lunch.

In addition, most come from a non-English speaking home and/or a broken home where one or both parents are not involved. These children often have to grow up too soon because of their circumstances.

They enter my classroom with excitement and such a desire to learn all about their new experiences. I make sure I give them a safe haven where they can thrive. I want to encourage them to strive to be all that they can be.

Through all their circumstances I want them to have all the advantages that other children have that are in more affluent communities. They should be able to have all the latest technology and learn in a beautiful place.

My Project

I want to create excitement by bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics alive for my students. I want them to know that they can be whatever they set their mind to and give them a strong foundation and a love for STEAM. My students need a listening center that includes headphones, a jack, and a boombox. They have a lot of great nonfiction science books that they have been unable to read because of a lack of listening center.

I want my students to excel in all academic areas, especially STEAM.

STEAM is the future and their future can shine! I want to prepare them by giving them opportunities they might not get at home. I want them to know how it is to be a Scientist and experiment. This is why they also need fun interactive STEAM centered magnets, puzzles, microscopes, and more.
