Hooray! This project is fully funded

Who doesn't love mail? With 30 kids in a class, a child can easily feel lost in a crowd. I teach first grade in Englewood, a neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. All of my students are African American and all receive free lunch. Purchasing a mailbox for our classroom will be a great way to organize our materials. Each child can get individual notes and work specific to what they need. Students will use this mailbox everyday. Their morning math work will be placed inside. In each slot, I will be able to differentiate the work they receive. Students will get the morning work at a level of understanding that is applicable to them. They will also receive their homework from their mail slot. Again, no student will receive work that is too hard or too easy for them because what is organized in their slot is appropriate for that child. Purchasing this mailbox for our classroom means that each child can get individual attention. A classroom organizing tool like this is necessary to enhance the students' education.
