  • My Class Needs hands on learning materials to engage student learning

    Launched August 8th, 2017 Project Deadline January 10th, 2018
    Classroom Size 24 Students School Size 188 Students

    My Students

    Our school is a small K-7 school which is one of the smallest schools in our district. Currently we have approximately 220 students, many with high needs. My grade 2/3 class will directly benefit from this project, as well others classes as we partner up for collaborative learning opportunities. Our ability to fundraise for additional classroom items, like these, is limited.

    How will this project impact them?

    It is my goal to help prepare my students for the future by helping engage students through hands on activities that allow for deeper more meaningful learning. Students who are engaged are more invested in their learning. Student will have a deeper connection with the content and hopefully will retain more information and become genuinely curious about furthering their learning. It is important for student to be active in their own learning and not just passive observers. Curious and critically thinking students will be on a more successful educational path that I hope they will continue long after leaving my classroom.

    * Fulfillment Materials: This covers the physical costs of processing teacher and student thank-you letters and pictures, including printing, postage, labels, envelopes, cover sheets, etc.

    ** Payment Processing Fee: An average of fees charged to MyClassNeeds for processing donations (e.g. credit card payments through a secure server). We have worked hard to select the most secure option for the cost.

    *** Optional Donation: An optional donation to support MyClassNeeds which is calculated at 15% of the project’s price tag. The optional contribution supports the work we do to engage teachers, build awareness, and to generally run MyClassNeeds. To do that we need a world- class website supported by strong business systems and processes that improve over time.
