Mrs. Melendy from Hennessey OK is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Little Bit of This and That

Help me give my students additional supplies that we can use in our classroom. I am asking for crafting supplies that we make for Mother's Day projects, clipboards we use weekly during our grammar scoots, and office materials.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. I have 16 wonderful students in my class this year who are all so very unique and special, and together they make every day so much fun! Along with my homeroom students, I teach science, social studies, and grammar to two other classes! Together I teach about 60 students everyday!

They are growing and learning in the same small, tight-knit, school community that inspired me to be a teacher.

They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it. They are our future, and I want to give them a great start to their long successful career.

My Project

I am asking for crafting supplies we use for parent gifts, office supplies that I as a teacher use all the time, and some educational resources that will make me a better teacher.

I have asked for a Giftedness 101 book for some research on how I can teach my gifted students better.

I am also asking for some office supplies that I normally pay out of my pocket such as bright colored paper for printing off activities and notes to parents, ink for my printer in my classroom that allows me to print off our reports in colors for parents to read easier. Then every year we make Mother's day art projects which is why I am asking for the shrinky dink paper and keychain items.
