Mrs. McCrury from Odessa TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

A Moment, A Minute, A Memory

Help me give my students binders and sleeve protectors, cardstock and crafting supplies to create memory books, and a place to store them.

My Students

When the announcement came on March 15th that our Spring Break would be extended, we had no idea that extension would turn our world upside down. Twenty-six students would remain at home that week and all the weeks that followed. Twenty-six desks would remain empty, along with an empty teacher chair and easel.

We didn't know there would not be another opportunity to gather and celebrate our successes, trials and triumphs with shared smiles.

Although I haven't met each new student for next year, I already know we will grow to love each other. Every sparkling eye and smiling face will carve a place in our classroom and hearts, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

My Project

As I move forward to next year into a class of over 30 unique students with varying capabilities, I hope to learn from the uncertainty of the past and guide students in capturing their special moments.

Student created memory books will help build confidence as students choose the way their personal success story will be told.

Using binders, cardstock, embellishments and glue, children will document their journey through second grade. Assembling writing samples, illustrations, awards, photographs and best works will produce memories and smiles for years to come. This unique way to teach grammar, journaling, measurement, geometry, timelines, problem solving and art is sure to become a family favorite when school ends in June!
