Helping the Homeless Learn Critical Math and Science Skills

My students need math books and science experiments that will help them think critically and challenge themselves.

My Students

It's time to enjoy learning. I want my class of 2nd graders to challenge themselves and be actively engaged in their learning. I love that there are so many interactive experiments that can be used in direct alignment with the ccss and make learning fun.

My children are homeless and they amaze me on a daily basis.

My school is connected to an inner city homeless shelter and parents are extremely supportive in their children's education while getting back on their feet. My kids love coming to school and are excited about learning anything new.

My Project

I can't wait to open the NEW interactive materials and let my children be the first to ever play them. I will incorporate all of the materials into something that we use frequently. I guarantee the children will be thrilled and grateful when they realize what we will be getting. I have been a teacher for 10 years and absolutely love working at a homeless school. My students did not choose to be homeless and deserve a great education and all of the resources that children in other schools receive. We are so small we don't have a library or cafeteria, I want my children to feel successful and receive the best education possible.

Your donation will change lives.

It's that simple. Knowledge is power. I need the tools to provide my students with up to date information and resources because they deserve to have the best education possible. These donations will make a huge impact and enable me to have all of the resources that I need in order to maximize their learning gains. The resources are engaging and interactive and have the rigor that my students need to challenge them.
