Mrs. Maynes from Provo UT is requesting educational kits & games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Tools to Make Learning Fun and Engaging

Help me give my students hands-on materials and activities, and opportunties to learn new academic and social skills. The reading center will be a fun addition to our classroom and encourage a love of reading in my students.

My Students

I teach a class of the most adorable kindergarten students! Their energy and enthusiasm are boundless. They are excited about school and eager to learn. Some of their favorite things are recess (of course!) and Writer’s Workshop where they have enjoyed writing their own stories. Many of my students have not had the learning and socialization opportunities that they would have had if we didn't have the COVID-19 issues.

My Project

COVID-19 has decreased learning and socialization opportunities for my students. Many of them came to school with very little exposure to literacy materials, math manipulatives, and low social skills. Many students who might have otherwise gone to preschool did not have that opportunity due to COVID concerns.

Puzzles, games and literacy materials will help my students with motor skills, counting practice, literacy skills and socialization and make learning more fun and engaging.

Base ten manipulatives will allow my students to have hands-on opportunities to increase math skills. Literacy materials will help them learn to read and write. A library center will be a fun area for them to learn to love reading and interact with each other in an informal setting.
