Ms. Escamilla from Fort Worth TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Never Stop Learning, Because Life Never Stops Teaching

My students need engaging learning tools to keep them engaged in STEM activities. They need items such as a puppet theater, a fort, journals, and Insta-Snow.

My Students

My school is a charter school and most of my students travel some distance to come to this school to attend a better school than they are zoned to.

My students enter the classroom every day with excitement, enthusiasm and wonder; every day in pre-k is magical.

They are filled with so much desire to learn and have fun. We work hard and play hard!

Essentially all of my students are ESL (English as a second language) and most are from low socio-economic backgrounds.

My Project

S.T.E.M: Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

These STEM manipulatives will make a world of difference in the frequency in which my class does S.T.E.M activities.

Our classroom is lacking in materials for S.T.E.M. I feel like S.T.E.M is a fantastic way to teach/integrate several different subjects at the same time. These manipulatives/materials/activities will be very engaging to my students.

The Insta-snow will be a fantastic learning tool when we go over our unit on Weather. It will be engaging and super fun for students in my sensory bin!

The book "The Wind Blew " will also be a great addition to our weather unit which could use a little "oomph".

The puppet theater will be a great pretend/play and story retelling tool!

The stickers would be a fantastic addition to our classroom writing center.

Glitter and chenille stems will be a fantastic addition to our art center.
