Mrs. Burton from Colorado Springs CO is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help! Teach Our Youth to Go Green!

My students need the Lorax DVD, Dry Erase pocket sleeves, a color printer, and two Ipods to help them learn about being friendly to our environment.

My Students

My students enter with a smile and if there is ever a frown, I am in place to hear them voice their concerns before our learning takes place. My students encourage each other in a safe and welcoming environment where "manners matter!"

I have the pleasure of teaching at a K-8 low-income school that services students from a variety of backgrounds.

All students are offered free breakfast and lunch daily. I currently teach an amazing group of kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students. My students have so much personality and are excited about supporting their learning through positive interactions, hands-on-activities, and structured conversations.

Many of my students speak Spanish at home and are able to bring their knowledge into our classroom. As a result, several other students have been able to adapt and use the Spanish language as well. My students constantly grow academically and socially through their unique relationships.

My Project

My students sometimes do not realize what goes into providing clean paper or worksheets for each daily task. To help bring awareness, I would like to teach a unit on being friendly to our environment.

With the Lorax DVD my students will be able to have a "child-friendly" way of learning about being kind to our Earth.

Students will learn about the importance of recycling, reducing, and protecting plant life.

With the IPods, my students will be able to capture pictures of the work they have completed. Students will also be able to access the internet to find more ways to protect our Earth.

With the printer, I will be able to make quality copies of engaging activities for my students.

With the dry erase pockets my students will be able to reuse copies and reduce the amount of copies that need to be made.

Once the unit is over, students will be able to create stories that explain why reducing, recycling, and reusing is so important. Students will also gain life-long skills for keeping our Earth green!
