Ms. Herron from Independence MO is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Give Us a Method to Our Madness!

Help me give my students independence through organization! We need ways to organize our materials for small group learning in storage boxes. We also need to be able to use our individualized learning on the iPads without disrupting other students so we need headphones.

My Students

My students have to overcome many challenges in order to be successful at school. They have a lot to learn too! They come to school ready to learn with smiling faces.

My students are eager to do their best and help us remember "the power of yet!"

"Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained, and delighted." -Dr. Seuss

I teach kindergarten in a Title I school with about 90% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch as well as a back-pack snack program.

My students try their best and keep practicing even when something is hard to do. My students love learning new things, and when we can have hands-on activities with our basic needs met, it makes our learning more memorable.

My Project

My students need materials that can help us better organize our classroom. The more organized things become, the more independent my students can become!

They love being able to do things independently, and you can help give them that freedom!

We need storage boxes for small group learning time, that way we know where our materials are and where to put them away without assistance. We need headphones because, sadly, not all of us can bring some from home. The headphones help us stay focused on our learning while also letting others stay focused as well.

Our classroom needs some more bins to hold new books for us. We love learning to read and experiencing new books. So, we need these new bins to help us remember where they belong.
