Mrs. Brown from Indianapolis IN is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Clutter-Free and Colorful Classroom

My students need a canon color printer for our colorful activities. My students need rolling carts for all of their supplies and manipulative. My students need dry erase markers for daily use in the classroom.

My Students

My students are a group of fifth graders that attend a Title I school in a high-poverty Indiana urban school district. They are made up from a diverse set of backgrounds and include English language learners, special education students, and all of them receive free or reduced lunches. While a lot of my students come from two-parent homes, many of them come from single parent homes. I also have students being raised by grandparents and other family members. Many of them come from homes without computers and very few books. Despite these obstacles, my students are bright, curious and eager to learn.

Most importantly my students love coming to school, learning, and being in fifth grade.

They are proof that with the necessary materials and a positive learning environment, poverty doesn't have to be a deterrent to a good education.

My Project

The activities that take place in our 5th grade classroom involve a lot of supplies, manipulatives, and movement. We would use these colorful carts to stay organized and clutter-free. Speaking of colorful, my students would greatly benefit from having a color printer. My school is unable to provide a color printer due to costs. But how boring it would be for them to showcase their many projects in just black and white! My class and I would use the color printer to create a multitude of projects to present throughout the school year. And as far as dry erase markers...you can never have enough dry erase markers.
