Ms. Kilpatrick’s Classroom Edit display name

Your custom url is https://www.donorschoose.org/bridgetkilpatrick

I learned from my first year of teaching that the best thing you can do for yourself is be prepared for any and all possibilities. By keeping my students stocked with basic supplies, I can keep the classroom functional and beautiful and create a learning environment where anything is possible. My theme for my classroom this year is "Oh the Places You'll Go!" and I want my students to feel just that by having everything they could possibly want at their finger tips! Your donation is going to the small things that make big projects happen in my classroom! For example, I will be using the laminator to create sentence starters to go on my desks before the first day of school. These sentence starters allow students who are struggling readers/writers as well as English Language Learners to access the language necessary to write about historical topics. The electric stapler and the glue sticks will be used for a thousand things in a classroom, but the students use these the most during our project where we create a giant hanging mobile. The mobile has all of their vocabulary words from the first semester on it, attaching these vocabulary words to an image and a theme. I use the trays in my classroom so students can access the work from the entire week when they were absent, keeping all classroom worksheets accessible to help keep students organized. Of course, hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes keep our classroom functioning once flu season comes around, helping keep the classroom clean and keeping kids in school. And finally, the storage box will be used to keep all of my students wonderful projects for years to come!
