Ms. Martinez from Wichita Falls TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Keeping our Bots Safe

My students need cases for our technology. The Sphero, Osmo, Botley, and Wonder bot cases will allow my kindergarten students to carry the items around the classroom.

My Students

I will be moving to kindergarten this year. About 90% of the students at my school receive free or reduced-price lunch. All of the students in my classroom are bilingual students. In my classroom we will work on strengthening our Spanish reading, writing and speaking skills. Some of my students come from difficult family lives, but they don't let that stop them from learning and trying their best! Most students are living with a single parent, grandparent or both parents who work full time, although many parents are eager to help in anyway they can I want to help them provide the best for their child.

I plan on building a community in our classroom that will allow each student to feel comfortable and express their creativity.

I want to support my students the best I can! They like to move, they love to be part of our community, and they love lots of positive attention.

My Project

My students love to use our Wonder Bots, Osmo, Sphero, and Botley throughout the school year. I see how they collaborate with one another and use their problem solving skills while using these items.

However, since these materials are well loved, the boxes they came in are falling apart and we are starting to lose pieces.

These cases will help my kindergarten students carry the items from place to place without any problems. They will also have a way to store them and help my students know the proper way to clean up after using the items. This will bring so much organization to our classroom.

These items will help my students learn how to store their STEM items. They will make it easier for my kindergarten students to carry their stem items so that they can work in a station with other classmates. We enjoy using our STEM items in the classroom on a daily basis this will ensure not pieces are lost or mixed up so that students can constantly work on STEM activities.
