Ms. McKeich from Palm Beach Gardens FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Oceans Alive!

My students need supplies to help transform our room into an ocean/pirate learning experience. WE need books, mini accents and more.

  • $495 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I have a very eager group of kindergarteners! They love to learn about anything and everything. Right now, they are learning to grow their love of reading and writing and how the two things work together.

They are all at a very wide range of reading skills.

They enjoy to sit in class and read books, as well as use technology to enhance their learning. They are all very caring children, helping each other out as much as they can.

My Project

My project will transform our classroom into a hands-on ocean learning experience. The children will be immersed in a world of learning, including math and reading activities. There will be lots of ocean books, decor galore, as well as a mix of pirates to make arrrr (our) learning more fun.

Kindergarten is the best place to start the love of learning, and who wouldn't love to be a part of a pirate loving ocean room!

They will use the supplies requested throughout the year to add to the already fun-filled, enriching kindergarten curriculum. What a great way to start a year off!
