Mrs. Kohler from Union Mills IN is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Classroom Isn't a Home Without the Basics

My students need Scoop Chairs because it will help to add excitement to everyday learning. My students LOVE working collaboratively. The Wobble Chairs will allow students to burn off energy while learning.

My Students

My class is made up of unique learners working hard to showcase their personal best. Some of these students come from low-income homes, while others come from upper-middle class homes. Our school is a K-12 building in a rural community with many different economic, home life, and educational backgrounds.

My students are energetic and love to move, like to read, and enjoy hands-on learning experiences.

With a third of students coming from low-income homes it is essential to provide them with the accurate supplies and create a loving environment within the classroom.

My Project

With adequate supplies, such as pencils and Expo Markers, to use throughout the day students will be more at ease. Often times students have to borrow supplies from their peers because they do not have the supplies needed to participate in the classroom.

Having a colorful classroom with flexible seating it will allow students to feel energized, excited, and comfortable in their learning environment.

By using the Chalkboard Brights classroom decor, positive sayings, and having extra supplies and art bins students will be able to put their energy towards reaching their own individual goals.

Most of our classroom books are shoved onto a shelf. By showcasing new titles each month using the book shelf it will allow the students to become more excited to read.
