Mrs. Branstrom from Green Bay WI is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Shed a 'Light' on LEARNING!

Help me give my students community people, OSMO tools, and shed a new 'light' (pun intended) on how students are able to explore shapes, color mixing, and letter building with an Ultra Bright LED Light Panel.

My Students

My kindergarteners brighten the would around them with their passion and optimism for life and learning.

"Kindergarten - where EVERYTHING is still possible." ~Unknown

My students learn about the world around them through their play. They take the concepts I teach, apply their own background knowledge, and engage in hands-on and minds-on learning experiences in a safe and supportive classroom environment. For many, kindergarten is the foundation for their education at 'school'. My goal is to instill a true passion and LOVE for learning in every child.

My Project

'Brighten' the day of every child who choses to examine the x-rays of animals from our habitat unit, explore 2D and 3D shapes, mix colors, or build letters on the Ultra Bright LED Light Panel.

"Music can change the world." ~Beethoven

Allow students to express themselves creatively through music with the Rock and Roll It flexible rainbow piano.

Help my students make their pretend play come alive and deepen their understanding of community helpers with human figures.

Help children learn how they fit into the world around them and how THEY have the power to positively impact their community.

Through the OSMO's "holistic approach to early learning" children have an engaging tool to use as they "develop lifelong skills and a love for learning!" ~OSMO

Not only does the OSMO strengthen math and literacy skills, it also strengthens fine-motor, organizational, problem solving, and time management skills!
