Mrs. Windham from Taylors SC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Best Place to Learn!

My students need manipulatives for math games and STEM activities including Magna-Tiles, creative art supplies, chart paper and cozy pillows to help our classroom be a motivating, creative, yet homey and safe environment.

My Students

I want to create a classroom that my second graders are excited to be a part of every day!

Giving my students special writing tools like glitter pens as a reward, or light boxes to foster creativity is such a fun way to create an atmosphere for creative learning.

We are actively engaged in our learning all day. I encourage my students to be problem solvers with a Growth Mindset! Several of my students are ADHD and others have learning disabilities. Having a classroom that supports all kinds of learning is my goal.

My Project

As a veteran second grade teacher who cares so much about fostering a loving, warm atmosphere for her students, it is challenging to not go into debt at the beginning of the school year. There is so much that goes into making a successful room that is welcoming and creates an environment that works for all students.

I am always looking for more authentic ways for them to engage in learning, create excitement and build a safe place to learn.

My students need magna tiles for creative STEM related activities, clipboards that double as white boards for group activities, cozy pillows to make our classroom feel safe and inviting, and lots of different pens, markers and paper to fuel growing creativity.

Unfortunately, schools cannot provide the funds teachers need to create an up to date classroom that runs smoothly, and teachers are left spending their own money on supplies. By donating to my class you give a gift that keeps on giving.
