Ms. Seidlitz from San Antonio TX is requesting materials related to food, clothing & hygiene through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Rain Is Great for Flowers; Kids, Not So much.

Help me give my students the opportunity to "Sing in the Rain," with an umbrella, rather than a run and fall into the mud experience.

My Project

My sixth graders are fabulous! They are excited about life and run everywhere. They run down the halls, across the field, and to our classroom.

Unfortunately, the classroom is in a portable location far from the main building.

Normally, their running to my room is pretty adorable, but when it rains..... it's dangerous. An umbrella to hold, would slow them safely down and give them an opportunity to "experience" the rain in a calm way. Who knows, they might even be "Singing in the Rain" as they walk into our classroom.
