Mrs. Darden from Brea CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands-on Learning Is the Best Learning!

Help me give my students hands-on resources that help them grow as learners. The Goldiblox builder set is fun for everyone but is particularly geared toward girls to help them discover their inner engineer.

My Students

I have a very diverse classroom full of eager learners! They come from a wide variety of cultural and economic backgrounds. My students love to build and create with their hands.

They are a very bright and creative group!

I love being able to see all of the wonderful things that they dream up when they are given the time and tools to do so. They thrive in an environment that allows them to think outside the box and work collaboratively with their classmates.

My Project

All of these products will be used by the students, for the students. They not only will help reinforce math concepts taught in class and will help them come to life for all students but will allow them to be creative and build things they never thought possible! Hands-on supplies will help the children take ownership over their learning in a way that can not be accomplished with pen and paper.

These math manipulatives are geared toward making engineers and mathematicians out of the boys AND girls in my class.

They will be able to access the supplies during our daily Math Workshop and PBL time in class.
