Ms. Erin from Hawthorne NJ is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

New Curriculum, Materials Needed!

Help me give my students a hands-on learning experience. I have a brand new curriculum and some of the themes are "sand exploration," "buildings," "balls," and "simple machines."

My Students

My students are 3, 4, and 5 years old. The class is an integrated preschool with both general education and special education students. I focus on the theory that fair does not always mean equal and as a class we have created a safe learning environment for all students.

It is my job as a teacher to teach my students to love learning.

Each day is an opportunity to reach a new milestone and discover something new about ourselves. I learn as much from my kids as they learn from me. Teaching is more than a job- it's my passion. Your support is beyond appreciated!

My Project

My school district just purchased a brand new preschool curriculum! As I explore and expand the new lessons and introduce the new concepts to my students, the need for new materials has grown. I am requesting material for kinetic sand so I can allow children to explore the effects of sand in a small group setting.

I am requesting ramps and balls to help facilitate a STEM-focused classroom in which the students explore speed and balance by problem solving.

I am also requesting paint because my students LOVE to express themselves by replicating their 3D creations in a picture format.
