My students have enjoyed using our new art easel and supplies. It has been great seeing how each student expresses themselves through their artwork. The art easel is the perfect size for my young learners, and what I really enjoy is that it has a drying rack attached to it. Our old art easel did not have this and I usually was only able to have 2 students paint during our center time, now I am able to have more students participate daily. On the behalf of my students and myself, thank you so much for blessing our classroom.
The grant for learning board games for our small groups in 4th grade has been helpful, beneficial and just plain fun for our students. The kids look forward to small groups and mastering gaps in both reading and math skills. We have seen considerable effort and group support while the students are working together. Playing these board games has been a great learning tool for their social and emotional growth as well. The Woodland Hills 4th Grade Teachers and students would like to thank the Lawton Public School Foundation for the generous gift of learning for our classrooms!
This grant permitted us to purchase flexible seating ergonomic stools that allow the student’s body to have various positions and motions. Students can release their movement impulses while remaining focused on the lesson. The students are exhilarated to utilize the ergonomic stools in class. Thank you for your support in our students’ education!
Our school office is in the process of ordering. I am so excited to receive the materials! I will use the numbers pocket chart every morning during calendar time and the students will be able to use it during centers. I can’t wait to use it during small groups to work on a variety of math skills. I will also use the alphabet pocket chart every morning during calendar time and the students will be able to manipulate the chart during centers! I will be able to use the activity cards and number cards during whole group lessons and small groups! Students love new items and are excited to learn! I can’t thank you enough for your generous donations for students! Thank you for supporting our LPS students and teachers! I look forward to using the items every day!
Thank you for the grant. With the grant, our school was able to purchase class sets of dictionaries for two fourth grade and two fifth grade classes. The students were excited to delve into our new dictionaries. First things first, the students worked in partners on a Dictionary Scavenger Hunt to learn about the different features of a dictionary. They were focused and engaged. The students practiced more research skills by playing a few of rounds of Mystery Word. It makes a teacher’s heart full to hear students say, “This is fun!”. They students became more efficient in their analytical and research skills and learned some new words along the way. It’s a win!!!
As the librarian, I try to promote reading and becoming lifelong readers; therefore, bookmarks are essential! We have a cup full of bookmarks, and the students enjoy seeing all of the different ones the Foundation gave us and being able to choose one that is appealing. Thanks so much!!!
