Help me give my students a Toy Story classroom transformation including life size cardboard characters, hanging lights, a giant slinky, and new games to make learning in 3rd grade engaging!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The students whom I have the honor of teaching come from many different walks of life including varying socioeconomic statuses, family dynamics, and cultures. Among this diverse group of students, my goal as their teacher is to develop a passion for learning in a nontraditional classroom setting.
When walking into my classroom, you will see an emphasis placed on creativity, academic achievement, exemplary citizenship, self-esteem, and critical thinking skills for every child.
The high academic achievement demonstrated by my students over time is the result of a dynamic learning partnership of students, parents, staff, and community.
I want my students to be engaged in learning every minute they are with me. I believe transforming our classroom throughout the school year helps me to accomplish this goal.
What are transformations?
Well, imagine walking into your 3rd grade classroom, and it looks like a scene right out of a Disney movie! The kids instantly become excited and engaged. The mood is now set and each game can be used to teach cross curricular lessons. High level questions in reading, math, science, and social studies will be created to accompany each game. I have the opportunity to increase the rigor and push their little minds to infinity and beyond.
The learning possibilities are endless, and the materials will be able to be used year after year!
