Ms. Helms from Germantown MD is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarten Literacy Centers

My students need 11 literacy center materials such as magnetic letters, folder games, and rubber stamps.

  • $396 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach a Kindergarten class. The class has special needs students included for the entire day.

Hands on activities really appeal to all of my students. My students love going to their literacy centers. Limited funding makes it difficult to provide students with the variety of literacy centers and literacy center activities they need to keep them meaningfully engaged.

I'm so happy my students enjoy literacy centers. I want to encourage them to keep up their love of learning by providing literacy centers that are hands on and appealing. I have requested literacy related games, alphabet stamps for word building activities, literature based centers and a classroom magnetic center.

By supporting the project you will be supporting the students directly by providing them with fun, hands on learning. Please help them continue their love of going to literacy centers :)
