Teacher Givens from Riverview FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Turn Up the Air...Turn Up the Learning!

My students need to be comfortable in class and would greatly benefit from a few Lasko fans. We are located on an end classroom that tends to be warmer than many other classrooms.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are an awesome group of curious and motivated learners. We are close knit as many of the students live in the neighboring communities and interact with each other outside of school.

I love my class for many reasons but the biggest reason is because of our diversity.

The diversity within our class makes our learning environment interesting, engaging, and full of life and learning. Our learning experiences includes not just opportunities for instructional growth and learning gains, but for character building and cultural sensitivity experiences.

Along with working hard day in and day out, we learn to appreciate and value our educational opportunities and each other as classmates and members of our community.

My Project

We have one fan but it is not large enough to reach all students. Having at least two more fans would allow for greater air flow. We will place a fan in the front of the room, one in the middle, and the other in the opposite corner in the back of the classroom.

Our students currently come in from recess or PE and take turns standing in front of the one fan we do have and it honestly just isn't enough.

Additional fans will allow students to feel comfortable in class and more likely to maintain and stay focused.
