Kamishibai, 3D learning journals and safety glasses

belinda ridgewood ended up posting 4 projects last week because the first 3 were done so quickly! This one has a triple match, so we should be able to help him cross the finish line before the late August deadline.


Project: Tech Savvy in Pre-K Land

Resources: Help me give my students hands-on science and reading activities in a 21st century world using Alive 3D style.

Economic need: A Equity-oriented school; notearly all students from low-income households.

Location: AG Hilliard Elementary School, Houston, Texas

Total: $684.84 (3x matching funds)

Still need: $279.84 Done, thank you! Please consider project #3 below.

Deadline: August 29, 2022

Description of the project by Ms. Searles:

Reading can be fun and exciting to learn for little learners, but what could be better than bringing a 3D style of learning into a classroom.

The 3D animals that appear on the screen will create learners in reading, writing and science, while teaching young learners to use technology for learning and not just for entertainment.

This interactive learning tool will allow my students to take pictures, practice letters and sounds, and create online journals to support reading by scanning a barcode. What better way to start a learning journey than with tools adults use every day. Please help my young learners use technology to expand their learning.

Donations of ANY size can make a BIG difference!

Finally, here is our long-term project. Nearly half of the funds requested will be used to buy safety glasses for a never-funded science class that doesn’t have any (aaagh!), and the remaining funds will buy things like science books from the Earth and a terrestrial model.


Project: Just a few scientists, with no resources… Safety first?… Oh Boy

Resources: Help me give my students the necessary safety equipment and resources needed in a lab, to increase student productivity and generate higher-order thinking daily in the classroom.

Economic need: A Equity-oriented school; notearly all students from low-income households.

Location: Mundy’s Mill Middle School, Jonesboro, Georgia

Total: $412.12

Still need: $412.12 $378.59

Description of the project by Ms. Monday:

With the first year coming to an end and next year on the horizon. I would like to offer my students the most accelerated, STEAM-focused, and mind-boosting version of my Earth Science curriculum. I realized during my first year of teaching that I was running out of tons of necessary safety gear and resources. How can we conduct labs? Without safety glasses! Some requested materials and resources are basic and others are earth science related.

The purpose of this project will give me the resources to provide daily stimulating teaching and meet the needs of all my kinesthetic, visual and auditory learners.

Donations of ANY size can make a BIG difference!

DonorsChoose developed the designation Equity-focused schools describe some schools submitting projects. They meet two criteria: at least 50% of students are black, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, or multiracial, and at least 50% of students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, the standard measure of economic need in the school. ‘school.

With lots of help from TIP readers, 3 projects were completed last week! Here are the thanks from the teachers:

STEM on a roll!

Thank you all! Everyone helped fund my project for my students. It’s a perfect way to start a new school year. My students will be so excited when they return in August. Thanks to your helpful general donation, our STEM on a Roll will start and grow in the future.

With gratitude,
Ms Angela Williams

2nd year project-based STEAMers

Thank you so much for helping me provide science resources for my Title I students. This is a great start to our project-based learning experience. I’m so excited to share and explore science with my 2nd graders using hands-on tools that will make learning more authentic for us.

With gratitude,
Ms Lee

Hi buddy! How is it growing?

I am more than grateful for your help in funding this project! The research is clear on the positive benefits of outdoor learning on the social, emotional and cognitive development of children. By providing these materials to our students, we are able to provide new experiences that will develop the whole child, a primary focus of our school’s vision and mission. This material will reach a minimum of 150 students and provide amazing outdoor learning experiences they wouldn’t otherwise have. Thank you for all your support and generosity!

With gratitude,
Mrs Ruby

Small DNA molecule - page divider for The Inoculation Project

Founded in 2009, The Inoculation Project combats the anti-science and anti-education push in conservative America by funding science, math and literacy projects in public school classrooms and libraries across the state. red. Our conduct is DonorsChoosea crowdfunding charity founded in 2000 and much loved by both Charity Navigator and the Better Business Bureau.

Every Sundaywe focus on helping finance projects in public neighborhoods schools where the overwhelming majority of students come from low-income households. We welcome everyone who supports education in public schools – no money required!

Finally here is our list of successfully funded projects — the total of our series is 985! The Success List log also contains links and additional information about DonorsChoose.
