Ms. Wilson from Washington DC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Oh No, Where Did the Pieces Go?

My students need a new Sink or Float STEM KIT, a Mr. Potato Head, printer ink, and more snacks to replace missing parts and replenish our snack supply.

My Students

My school is a Title I school with ninety-nine percent of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. I am teacher of students with autism who are amazing! Each is only three or four years old, but is brilliant in his or her own right. Some are very vocal and receive time in the general education classroom.

One has gone from saying three words at the beginning of last school year to speaking in complete sentences.

Others are learning to use the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) to express their needs. I love the way my students work together in play center. I am proud of the way they have welcomed new students into our class!

My Project

My students need a new Sink or Float STEM Kit and Mr. Potato Head to replace missing pieces.

The Sink or Float kit has become a new favorite for several of my students.

They love lining up and organizing the toy rocks. Sadly, we lost many of the toys animals that go along with the set. I am asking for a new kit so my students can a have full STEM set to use in play center. I will store the pieces from the original kit in the closet and add them to the other set as needed.

Similarly, we have misplaced a few pieces from Mr. Potato Head. We need a new one, so Mr. Potato Head can have all of his legs, arms and feet! We also need to replenish our supply for snacks and printer ink.
