Ms. O'Neal from Mckinney TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Good Games and Building Sets for Growing Minds

My students need these challenging games and building sets to use their higher level thinking skills and to learn social skills at the same time.

My Students

Our Title One school is small but mighty in our focus of helping our kids be the best they can be. With only about 400 students it feels more like a big family than individual classrooms. The neighborhood is very stable so we have many generations of families attending our school.

Though we have our challenges, we always find a way to rise above them and work together to make our school a safe place for learning.

With our dedicated administration, teachers and staff we try our best to make each day a good day for all our students.

My Project

These games and building sets will be used every morning while students are waiting in the cafeteria for their teachers to pick them up. Many of our students get to school even before the doors are open so we will have plenty of time to enjoy playing the games and building things while we wait for our teachers.

We look forward to having some fun, honing our thinking skills and learning to be good sports too.

Students will also have access to these items during rainy day recess. Teachers will enjoy playing with the students and everyone will benefit from socializing while playing the games and working together using the building sets.
