Ms. Erhart from Austin TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands-On Centers For Little Learners

My students need more opportunities to have hands-on centers that reinforce concepts in science, math, and literacy. Science, especially, really comes to life when students are able to do experiments and investigations.

My Students

My students and I are not just a class; we're a family. We learn, grow, create, discuss, achieve, question, and grow together day in and day out. They are unique, bright, kind, and hardworking. Each one of them brings something different to our classroom community.

Embracing what we each bring to the table now will promote acceptance and understanding of others in the future.

Of course, as an educator, I focus on the expected curriculum, but ultimately, my goal is to promote social-emotional skills and individuality as well as inclusion for all of my students. Learning about topics such as different cultures, people with special needs/abilities, impactful historical leaders, perseverance, growth mindset, and more can help foster these qualities in all of my students.

My Project

By providing my students with more hands-on learning during rotations and center time, they will be engaged and motivated as they reinforce math, science and reading skills. Many of the activities I am asking for also promote life skills such as perseverance, problem-solving and more.

Hands-on activities are also especially powerful in supporting vocabulary development, fine motor skills, problem-solving, and better long-term understanding of concepts.

These activities that I chose are all fun and academically appropriate for kindergarten and first grade. I know my students will LOVE these and get tons of use out of them for many years to come.
