Mrs. PAINTER from Charleston WV is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mrs. Painter's Gifted Class

My students need a variety of items for their success. Mostly, they need technology like the WeDo 2.0 Robotics Kit, Video Game Kits, and Squishy Circuits to learn coding and electricity. They also need gardening gloves.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are all identified as gifted, meaning they have a high IQs and their brain operates differently than the average human's. This means they are often described as "weird" or different, but I would not have it any other way! My students are the best in the world, and I love every day I go to work because of them.

My students are bright, energetic, curious, and fun to be around and they never stop blowing my mind with their brilliance, quirks and love of learning new things, especially technology.

They are truly a wonder to behold.

My Project

Students will learn coding, electricity, and gardening this school year through the use of these items! Additionally, they will have the opportunity to continue reading a series by their favorite author!

STEM is a gateway to careers in today's society, and my students need these gateways from school, because they likely won't get them elsewhere.

The Lego WeDo Robotics Kit, the Bloxel Video Game Creation kit, the gardening gloves, and the squishy circuit all provide the students with these gateways. Additionally, my students need new books about specific topics to enhance their learning. Please help us with this goal! Thank you!
