Mrs. Mentillo from Satellite Beach FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands on Learning Fun

Help me give my students materials to encourage hands on learning. Stamps for spelling centers, number bond sliders for addition help and more student clocks will help students with daily lessons and centers.

My Students

My students are an active and energetic group of first graders. We believe in a classroom community built on trust and caring between everyone in the classroom.

Our class is full of interactive, social and hands-on lessons.

Center rotations, partner work, and student-led learning create an interactive learning environment where each student​ can thrive.

Our class was formed after the start of the school year and we have all embraced our new classroom family and the change that came with it.

My Project

We use manipulatives in our classroom daily and I have seen a need for more opportunities for my students to use them during the day. Our learning is very hands on and active and more materials would help us reach more students learning styles. New letter stamps are great for word work and spelling, math stamps for extra help and learning new concepts. My class loves hands on activities and having more stamps and ink pads available will allow us to use them more often.

New manipulatives and materials will help reach each students unique and creative learning styles.

Adding more mini clocks, math sliders and geo boards will help my students see the fun in math and how hands on learning can be.
