I was personally excited because this version of Shackleton’s expedition is written at a middle school level, and the ones I have access to are a really high reading level, so my students would often get frustrated.

Thank you so much for donating to my project, Sew Your Way to Success. The students have loved using the new sewing machines to make some hand warmers and a quilt tile pillow. The sewing machines were such a blessing to our students who, coming into the sewing unit, were afraid to even touch one because they thought they would hurt themselves.
When the students first saw the sewing machines, they were awestruck because they are not used to getting new things for just them to use. Prior to…”Supported Sew Your Way to Success! on January 06, 2020Ms. MeganWoodsedge Learning Center•Kalamazoo, MI

Due to COVID-19 my students were only able to use the materials from this project for a short while before school closed. During that time the students loved using the materials during indoor and outdoor recess. When we go outside for recess, there is no play structure for the students to play on and we have to bring what materials we had outside. Students spent time running around, throwing balls or playing with bubbles. Now that we have new outdoor materials, students are learning to play…”Supported Building Fine and Gross Motor Skills Through Play on January 06, 2020Mrs. HernandezWashington Elementary School•Eureka, CA
