Ms. Ellison from Edmonds WA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Imagine Children's Museum Adventure

My students need help paying for our bus transportation to Imagine Children's Museum. Most of my students come from low income families and would have difficulty paying for the bus.

My Students

Developmental kindergarten is such an exciting group of mixed interests, abilities, and goals. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while some of their classmates are learning to imitate sounds or hold a paintbrush. Our group loves to play outside, learn new games, and boogie to a sweet tune.

In this class, we build a community around what we have in common and our shared experiences.

We are part of a larger school that celebrates inclusion. I teach in a wing of five kindergartens, three general education and two developmental. As my students make gains in my classroom, they begin to try small chunks of the day with their typically developing peers. My classroom is about building skills to get included. The work we do in this classroom is building relationships, staying with the group, following directions, and accessing general education content in different ways. We celebrate little wins together each day.

My Project

My students have the opportunity to go to the Imagine Children's Museum at the end of June to celebrate our incredibly hard work this year.

School communities can be isolating for parents of students with special needs.

This museum trip is not just a time for students to explore and learn together. It's also a chance for these parents to connect and build community.

We have fundraised the cost of admission for our students, but in order for us to get there we need to pay for a bus. Our classroom includes a student in a wheelchair, so we need a bus that is equipped with a wheelchair lift, which costs a bit more. If we were to split this between my 11 students, the trip would be a burden on these families.
