    My Students

    My current class of grade 1s is a diverse, busy group of learners. We work hard to ensure that there are hands on opportunities for all students as we also work on practicing the basics. We will often work with other students in other classes during "exploration" time. This time is a favourite for our classes as students are able to share their learning as well as learn from others of different ages, but maybe similar interests. Having tools like these would help to facilitate this!

    How will this project impact them?

    Students of all ages and abilities benefit from hands on learning opportunities. Being able to put various forms of technology in the hands of children instills an interest, provokes a curiosity and creates learning on a variety of levels. My students really enjoy exploring. We have "exploration" time on our daily schedule. Students have opportunities to build, construct, learn, share and collaborate to try new and interesting things. We will use these tools to further enhance exploration time and support their skill development particularly in the curricular area of Applied Designs and Skills Technology. These tools will benefit students in a variety of ways as my class works with other classes to extend their learning. Collaboration of this nature will also benefit their critical thinking and communication capacities.

    * 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.
