Mrs. Amaya from Hattiesburg MS is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Project Lab

My students need a laminator so the "Learning Kits" they create can be used by other students in our school.

My Students

Save our work! Students are creating authentic projects to share with other classes by developing "Learning Kits." It is hard to motivate students to put forth their best effort if their materials will not hold up to long-term use. Knowing that their work will be "saved" will inspire them!

My students are second grade intellectually gifted students in one of Mississippi's fastest growing school districts.

These students come from diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds. All have been identified by set criteria to participate in this one day per week pullout program to promote higher level thinking skills.

My Project

With the help of the laminating system requested my classroom will be transformed into a project-based learning environment where students eagerly work on authentic projects to demonstrate their own learning and enhance the learning of others! We will call our classroom the "Project Lab" because our room will be like a lab with students working to create outstanding projects to share with others. Students will learn how to research, plan, set goals, and follow through to completion on a project of their choice based on each unit of study. By using the classroom laminator student's work will be protected from wear and tear caused by use over the year. The "Learning Kits" they create with laminated educational reports, lessons and activities will be shared with other students. Without this laminator, these projects can only be shared for a short time; however, with this laminator system these projects can be used indefinitely and many students will benefit from our effort

Not only will "Project Lab" inspire my students to put forth their very best effort on authentic learning projects, but it will also allow them to produce high-quality projects that will enhance learning for their peers in our school.

Once completed student-created "Learning Kits" will be available yearly to enhance the learning for many students.
