Mrs. Slayton from Los Angeles CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Puzzle Masters!

My students need puzzles especially with exposure to different careers paths. Most of my students have never played with puzzles. They also need help with how to work independently and learn to preserve through any task!

My Students

My first grade class is composed of 24 eager and bright young minds. Each comes from different ethnic and social backgrounds. My students live in a low socioeconomic area and are second language learners. Our school is a Title I/Bilingual program school where a large number of students qualify for free-reduced meals and speak another language other than English.

My students yearn for supplemental fun resources besides books, pencil, and paper to help them learn and achieve grade level standards.

My Project

My students need puzzles to be able to practice with their fine motor skills and brain development. These puzzles will also tie into our community helper unit, as my students explore different jobs and are exposed to other opportunities for them to look into as they learn about careers.

Since my students don't have puzzles at home, this donation will help my students have fun while learning!

Your generous donation will help fund materials that kids need to help with their development of fine motor skills, brain development, and their independence. We look forward to having puzzles to help us learn and develop!
