Mrs. Grimsley from Xenia OH is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students STEM building toys, so they can practice STEM skills during counseling sessions.
I am the school guidance counselor for a kindergarten through fifth grade elementary school. My students come from various backgrounds and cultures. Most of my students come from low economic situations and all of the students at my school receive free breakfast and free lunch. Some of the students at my school also are experiencing being homeless. This means that they often lack the items needed to meet their basic needs.
I would like the 450 students at my school to be able to have the opportunity to learn, explore, discover, and most importantly thrive in the classroom through the various programs used within the classroom.
I support the teachers at my school by providing monthly character trait lessons in the classroom. I also provide one on one and group counseling to students who need a little extra guidance. The students at my school are awesome and I love working to help meet their physical, social and emotional needs.
Throughout the school day, I spend time with students who are in need of counseling. Students also come to my office when they need a time out from the classroom or a short break from their schoolwork. Having the chance to play with toys while I talk with them helps the students be more comfortable and open. This is especially helpful when I am having difficult discussions with them.
I try to reinforce as many academic skills as possible, while working with students in my counselor's office.
I would love to integrate STEM skills into my counseling sessions by offering the students access to STEM building toys. I am requesting Legos, magnetic tile blocks and snowflake building discs, so the students at my schools can practice STEM related skills.
Thank you for taking the time to read my project idea. My students and I appreciate it.
