Ms. McCain from Fort Smith AR is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree!

My students need educational experiences outside of the classroom like a trip to a Christmas tree farm.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is full of children that come from very diverse backgrounds. They are very hard-working students and want to learn as much as possible.

Our classroom is a place of love and learning.

My favorite thing to witness is when a child grasps a concept that they have been struggling with. This moment inspires me to continue pushing my students to become the best they can be. These children want to learn as much knowledge as possible, and my ultimate goal is to provide them with engaging learning experiences. These kids deserve so much!

My Project

This field trip will allow our students to learn about the planting, care, and harvesting of the Christmas trees. The students will take a hayride through the Christmas tree farm to observe the process. he majority of our children have never been to a tree farm to experience the actual living Christmas tree. By stimulating the children's senses, we are engaging multiple learning styles allowing for all children to experience success. A visit to the Christmas tree farm would include fresh air, sunlight, smells of Christmas, a ride in a hay wagon, learning how to feed and take care of animals. The children would also get to watch a Christmas tree be cut and "wrapped". The experience would enable the children to participate more actively in learning activities, such as reading, writing, class discussions, role playing, etc.
