Help KDP fund a Classroom Teacher Grant for “Let’s Listen and Use Our Imagination!”, a Classroom Manipulatives project by Dana Roffe. She teaches Pre-K and has 6 years of teaching experience.
Application for Funding:
All students should be given the opportunity to learn how to read in their own unique way. As of now, I am able to provide a reading center, but having listening center equipment would provide another form of reading. As educators, we know that students learn in different ways. By having a listening center, students are able to know where to go to listen to various stories. This would provide another outlet for students to hear a story differently rather than a teacher reading the story or if they try to read the story themselves. Having a listening center would reinforce a story and allow the students to think about how he/she can relate to the story.
Many of the students are hungry and only receive food at school. Many of the students speak another language (Spanish, Vietnamese, Creole, and French). I have a few students with Individual Education Program/Plan (IEP) in the classroom as well. Many of the students live in apartments and do not own many new items. In my classroom, I only received $150 for two classes, which is not enough money to support the students.
How the $150 would be spent:
The $150 grant will be spent on the listening center equipment called Ready-To-Go Listening Center for 4 from Lakeshore. The listening center equipment cost $129 without tax. Maryland tax is $7.74 and the shipping is 19.35 in 7-10 business days. The total is $156.09.
I would pay the difference as I really want the listening center equipment. I would not be able to get the listening center equipment otherwise without the help of Kappa Delta classroom teacher grant, as I do not have that much money for my classroom.
