Let's Make It Multicultural

Help me give my students some books, passports, a set of multicultural puppets, a multicultural movement CD and a chromebook for electronic field trips.

My Students

Our school is close to two military bases and many of my students are the children of deployed military personnel. The school they attend is an older, urban public school in the largest city in the largest state in the United States.

My first graders are struggling to learn the basics---math, reading and science.

Nearly half of them receive services for ESL, Special Education and Indian Education (JOM). Most of my class are below grade-level but they love being in school because they love learning. Their smiles melt my heart.

All of my students are eligible for free breakfast and lunch but we are not a Title I school that means that my wonderful first graders have all of the needs and few of the resources that are available to other low income children.

My Project

Once upon a time, students learned with paper and pencils. They were successful but now technology has changed all of that. Ways of learning and knowing are different in the 21st century. My children need a chromebook in our classroom so they can go on electronic field trips to explore other countries and learn about the world. I have contacted two other schools in different parts of the world and we plan to SKYPE with each other.

Many of my children have limited access to technology outside of school and most do not have funds for toys, books, school supplies, field trips or access to special learning opportunities.

I want to change all of that. I am asking for a few books, a set of multicultural puppets and a special multicultural movement CD so we can incorporate awareness of different cultures into our classroom. I am also requesting some passports and stickers so we can keep track of the countries we visit on our electron field trips.

Communication is the basis of education and this project will help my students learn to communicate with children in different parts of the world. They will also be able to share what they are learning with their families.

I have no money for these luxuries. I need the help of donors. Our district is facing a very difficult funding shortfall, and we have been told there is absolutely no money for additional resources. Please help my kids.
