Ms. Stamper from Charlotte NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A First Classroom Needs A Lot Of Firsts!

My students need basic storage, seating and school supplies to organize, teach, and decorate my first classroom.

My Students

This is my first classroom for my first year of teaching. I will be teaching two groups of second graders for Math and Science. I work at an inner city school in North Carolina. I am very excited to meet these two groups of second graders and help them to understand Math and Science in new and fun ways.

These students come from home lives that are not optimal.

It is a Title 1 school where all the students are on free and reduced lunch. I am hoping to provide a safe and loving classroom where they can feel comfortable and able to learn.

My Project

Many supplies on the list will be used for organizing of student and teacher materials. Items include the storage bins, turn in baskets, and the mailbox used for a paper organizer. Other items such as the rulers, dry erase boards, and dice will be used on a daily basis by all students. The students will be able to use the beanbag chair, pillows, and clipboards in order to do work comfortably around the room. The added option gives students a chance to move from their desks to get a new outlook.

Starting a first classroom can be hard and expensive.

With help I can give these students the learning experience they deserve right off the bat. They wouldn't have to wait for me to save up my spare change to make their learning fun and interactive.

Organization is very important to me and keeping my students organized will help them to stay on task and learn more effectively. The clothes pins and craft sticks will help to keep the students on track as they can be used for many classroom management skills. Skills such as what job the student has that week and where they are on a behavior chart. They can also be used to tell where a student is in their work, weather they have finished or still need to work on the assignment a little more. With the help from you I can create this ideal learning environment that is both safe and effective.
