Mrs. Sandoval from Livingston TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Small Groups Make a Big Difference

Help me give my students extra materials that we can use in in my language arts classroom to boost their reading and comprehension skills! All the items in my cart would be great for small group instruction!

My Students

The one thing that makes my class so special this year is the fact that they are so different! I have 42 students who start off my day with a hand shake or hug each morning before they enter my classroom. The smiles on their faces, and their warm hugs each morning, are what makes my class the best class so far in my teaching career!

No matter how different each of my students may be, the smiles on their faces in the morning when they come to school is priceless!

I can see and feel that they want to be at school, that they love being around their classmates, and they feel welcomed each and everyday. I love how the different cultures of students have meshed to allow learning from each other, and that they can share thoughts that come from completely different experiences.

My Project

I would love to get more materials for my small group instruction time. I would be so excited if we could get the Nonfiction Reading Comprehension Practice Cards that I have requested! My class loves to read nonfiction passages and learn cross-curricular at the same time.

I have an eager bunch of learners in my classroom this year, and I would love to continue to feed their learning hunger with your help.

I would really appreciate any chance to accomplish my goal in getting these activities into my classroom, and giving my students the chance to learn even more. Thank you for taking the time to read about my project.
