Ms. Kyles from Washington DC is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Time Traveling to Medieval Times!

Help me give my students an opportunity to imagine the knights, kings, and queens in the stories they've read come to life right before their eyes!

My Students

We teach a group of rambunctious, kind-hearted and fun five and six year old kids in the historic Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC. Students in our school represent over 20 countries. Many students are English language learners and/or qualify for free and reduced-priced lunch, and they love learning! Our kindergarten and school diversity, along with their eagerness to learn, give my students exposure to many cultures and ideas. But like any urban school, resources can be limited for not only the basics but also the special things that enhance the learning experience and make school fun.

My Project

Our kindergarten students and chaperones need the cost of admission covered to Medieval Times as an extension of our medieval unit about knights!

This year we're using the Magic Tree House series to expand our understanding of different cultures and times in our history.

These units, based on chapter books, allow students to extend make-believe play along with the use of their imagination to create their own faraway worlds. This is what we want our students to experience on a trip to Medieval Times; a way to extend their learning about knights, kings, queens, and castles!

Students will participate in an educational program on anti-bullying before feasting in the royal courtyard like members of the royal court. Please, help us make this a reality for our young, inquisitive learners!​
