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

STAAR Olympic Boot Camp

My students need these items for our STAAR prep Olympics boot camp so that we can earn moves and turns by the correct answers and text evidence we provide. Thank you for your support!

My Students

We are a title 1 school in Cedar Hill, Texas. While have been blessed enough to have grown our classroom over the last few years with technology and other items that we need, sadly our district is not able to constantly afford to supply us with items that can assist us in growing our ever changing students and their needs.

My classroom is made up of special needs students in our grade level, as well as ESL, and GT students.

This group being so diverse, it is often challenging for me to make sure that I am effectively meeting all of their needs each day.

We are reaching out in the hopes that we will be able to get the simple things that we need to push our classroom to the next level and help to prepare us for our state assessment coming up, as well as making learning more fun and personal!

My Project

We are going to do an educational, Olympic themed boot camp, in order to improve our scores for our standardized test, the STAAR.

First, we will research and understand the country and culture their team is named after, which is where the Chrome books come in.

Students will then, work with stories, books, and passages answering questions on their Olympic Team to earn turns/moves in each game. This is why we need Operation, Headbands (inferring), rubik's cube (Higher order thinking), checkers, connect 4, and Jenga.

Winning teams will earn points to get medals at the end at our closing ceremony.
