Mrs. Stewart from Greensboro NC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Illuminate Our Learning!

Help me give my students the joy of learning with illuminated pieces on a light board! My students will love learning numbers, counting, and building words using these manipulatives on a light board I have created.

My Students

Kindergarten is the time to explore, love to learn, and make best friends. Kindergarten encourages children to create and teachers to nurture a love of learning. My students are examples of grateful and endearing children.

My students come from culturally and economically diverse backgrounds.

100 % of our almost 500 and growing student population receives free breakfast and lunch. We also have the highest ESL population in our large county. Many of my students enter my classroom with little to no experiences of school or social interaction outside their home.

My students learn academics through interactions as well as lessons. They observe one another and learn what is appropriate and what is not. I want to give my students the best opportunity to learn in a loving, safe, and caring environment.

My Project

My students will love working with these materials everyday during independent work! These illuminated pieces will captivate their attention and allow them to learn not only visually but also use their fine motor skills manipulating these pieces.

These materials will benefit my students learning during literacy and math centers in that they are interactive and fun, as well as educational and durable.

During math centers, my students will be able to count and compare sets of objects, make patterns, and describe shapes. During reading centers, my students will use the letters for letter and letter sound recognition and word building.
