Ms. Schoensee from Columbus OH is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Loaded with Letters

Help me give my students magnetic letters and a magnetic white board to be able to practice their spelling and phonics skills. They will be a great addition to our guided reading groups and centers.

My Students

My school is a public charter school in Columbus, Ohio. Attendance sits around 350 students. The 3rd grade consists of two classes of around 50 students. These students are mainly Hispanic who receive ESL services, a large African-American population, with a few Somalian, Caucasian, and Asian students as well. 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch and come from low-income households.

These students are ready to learn, but they need additional resources to take their learning to the next level.

The third grade students are dedicated to learning but have very limited supplies. Many of the students do not receive help at home. Some of my students have even told me they don't have any books at home! I want to provide these students with as much as possible while they are at school because of their lack of resources and support at home. These donations for supplies will help me to teach and prepare my students for their future education and lives.

My Project

These materials will help all my students regardless of their academic level. The magnetic letters and magnetic white board will be perfect to use during guided reading groups and word work time with students who need more help from the teacher. The students who are more independent can play word games with each other and teach each other to master their skills.

These materials will help every student in my classroom, especially those whose first language is not English.

Please consider helping my students receive resources that they do not have at home. These are resources that most public schools have, and I would like to be able to provide for my students.
