  • My Class Needs materials to enrich inquiry projects

    Launched October 16th, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 16 Students School Size 147 Students

    My Students

    I have a class of 16 Kindergarten students. Last year, my students conducted individual inquiry projects on a topic of their choice with me scribing, using pictures, and videos to document their findings. I would like to offer them materials that can be part of their investigation and documentation process. Extending their cross-curricular learning to other areas, I want students to be able to represent their learning through materials, objects, manipulatives, and/or visual arts. This means that I'm requesting a wide variety of different toys and materials that seem random but are the loose parts that provide the open-ended inquiry that will push students' imaginations further than they can imagine.

    How will this project impact them?

    I am interested in providing a learning environment for students that is stimulating, and encourage them to explore. As part of students' inquiry-based learning, I want to offer students materials to encourage exploration and creative play. I want to provide them with open-ended materials that they can use separately or combined to make their visions a reality! It will be an opportunity for them to represent their inquiry research and solidify their learning visually through different materials. I hope this will extend their inquiry, pique their interest, and lead to new inquiry projects for them!

    * 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.
