Mrs. McDonald from Anchorage AK is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students sensory toys, and treasure box for rewards. The Thera-putty helps them strengthen fine motor skills while they think they are playing!
The students in my Extended Resource (ER) classroom are two or more years behind academically and are working hard to gain skills and catch up with their grade-mate peers. The focus is to find their academic gaps in learning and then teach to those missing skills, allowing for acceleration of their learning!
Our school is a Title I School with a high percentage of families falling below the poverty level; all students receive free breakfast and lunch.
Despite the many challenges they face, each day my students arrive at school with smiles on their faces, ready to learn!
Learning is not always fun and easy for my students. This project provides rewards such as items from the treasure box the students can take home. The STEM type toys and thera-putty provide breaks from hard work while allowing the learning to continue.
Students work in small groups, and will often work hard for the reward of playing with "silly putty." The thera-putty not only provides a fun break from work, but helps strengthen hands and fingers.
Our Treasure box allows the student to pick small rewards as they are earned. Weekly, students are allowed to shop for bigger toys and school supplies.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
