Mrs. Splittstoesser from South St Paul MN is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Welcome In, Morning Bin!

My students need materials they can use weekly in their morning bins. Materials like magna-tiles help them apply STEM skills while the giant activity dice will help students apply current skills we are working on.

My Students

My classroom is filled with thinkers, risk takers, and principled curious students. Some of these students come each day with full stomachs, clean clothing and a healthy snack. Others come to get breakfast at school, wear the same clothes each day and can't afford to bring a snack. Yet, no matter how they enter the school, they all come ready to learn, with smiles on their faces.

The community where my school is located is an amazing one.

The community supports the local school, teachers, and students in any way they can. Our community, however, has one of the highest property taxes in our state while most of the residents are middle-class people. This makes it hard for donations to be made to the classroom. I love the school I work at and feel blessed to have such an amazing class!

My Project

The morning can be a chaotic time in the classroom. As students are coming into the classroom they are working on different things. This is a time for them to warm up their brains to get ready for the start of the day. Some will be putting away their materials, some are pulling bins, some are eating breakfast.

I want to make more meaningful morning bins.

I want them to apply to skills we are currently working on, but also skills that students need at home and school. Skills like problem-solving, that can be done with the Magna-tiles and bead activities.

Giving the students these materials to warm up gets them ready for the day, but also allows me to answer questions or conferences with individual students.
