Ms. Vina from Hialeah FL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Most of the students in my kindergarten class come from low economic homes. They have a variety of learning styles, interests, and needs. Some of my students are learning to read, write, and count, while some of their classmates are learning how to hold a pencil or draw simple pictures.

Kindergarten is such an exciting group.

Students have a large range of mixed interests and abilities. All my students are excited and eager to learn at school. I want to ensure they have all the necessary materials to grow and learn!

My Project

The laminating machine and pouches I am requesting will be used to create visual aids for a print rich environment, literacy and math activities, educational games, anchor charts, and activities for students to use at home. A laminating machine will also help to preserve student work and will give parents the opportunity to save their child's work for many years.

There are so many uses for a laminating machine in the classroom!

Students independently work in small groups during the differentiated instruction block. Many activities are created and used by students during this time. A laminating machine will insure that activities will last all year long.

Thank you for considering our project. We look forward to creating memories that will last a lifetime!
