Mrs. Melendez from Jonesboro GA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science Rules!

Help me give my students resources to use that they don’t have to worry about supplying on their own! We need fossil, poster boards, and more.

My Students

I am currently teaching a new content area (Earth science). I have only met my students briefly, but I can already see their eagerness to learn.

As the year progresses, I will make sure to update you on how awesome they are and how they have benefited from your kindness.

They constantly need to be lead in a direction of global learning to keep up with the jobs of the future. These resources will definitely help me give my students what they need! Thank you!

My Project

They will be utilizing these supplies for projects and hands on lessons. A great deal of my students are below reading level and I believe that the books would help them with the guided reading. I will also be utilizing the supplies for students that cannot afford it on their own. This will allow them to worry about getting work done, not how they can buy supplies for the projects. Please help me make this happen! We need you! I can’t afford it on my own. I buy what I can, but it’s not enough. I want them to focus on them and their learning.
