Mrs. Cappelli from Fresno CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Twins in Need, Indeed!

Help me give my students headsets, flashcards, a dictionary, playing cards, activities to help them exercise their brains during distance learning, and some granola bars to keep their tummies from growling while they work!

My Students

My twin students need materials to help them be successful in distance learning from home. My goal is to supply them with some hands-on materials they can use at home, which will ease the monetary burden on their mother.

My students' families may struggle financially to provide material resources, but they have the drive to help their children succeed!

My sixth-grade students need to experience what it is like to have what they need to continue learning at home. I want to bring the world to them. Please help me provide my students with these basic necessities!

My Project

I would like to provide my twin students with resources to help with their distance learning. I am requesting noise-canceling headphones with microphones to help them access our online video calls in a way that allows them to share the couch without feedback.

My twin students will be able to use the four operations flashcard pack with visuals to support their learning to work on their individual needs together at home.

In addition to the flashcard pack, I am requesting a variety of card games, dice, hands-on activities such as the LEGO Gadget kit and fraction tiles. I've included some granola bars, to keep their tummies from growling while they work, just as I do in school. They personally requested the Dog Man books, and I am happy to oblige!
