Mrs. Dollins from Mound Valley KS is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Light Up Our World 2

My students need light table manipulatives and light table alphabet tracing tiles.

  • $176 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I work in an Early Childhood Special Education classroom. Sixty percent of my students have some sort of special needs, and the other forty percent are model students. They range in age from three to five years old.

My classroom is the first school experience that many of my students will have.

Everything is new and exciting. Every day we enjoy spending time building with blocks, creating artistic masterpieces, engaging in dramatic play, and reading stories. My goal is to make our classroom a magical place that the students love to come to.

My Project

The materials I am requesting will add lots of fun and learning to our LED activity table. Students will be able to practice key learning skills, such as alphabet knowledge, counting, shapes, and patterns, all while exploring with the lights and colors. They will also be able to practice fine motor skills and explore new concepts in science. I particularly appreciate the storage and organization that comes with the manipulatives set. The students will be able to easily access the materials independently.

The light table accessories will definitely be a BRIGHT spot in my students' day.

I can not wait to see their little brains LIGHT UP with new learning!
