Mrs. Martin from Brainerd MN is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Well Organized Classroom Runs Smoothly!

Help me give my students organization in our classroom by helping fund my project. I'm asking for a 16-tray organizer and bins to help keep my room running smoothly and well-organized.

My Students

My first graders this year are so very special because I had most of them in my Kindergarten class last year! What fun to have so many of them for two years!!

My students are very kind to each other and we strive to celebrate each and every child on a daily basis!

I teach in a Title I school that has a very high free & reduced lunch population. These children are very special to me and I try to provide structure, positivity, and love each and every day.

My Project

I have been teaching for 23 years. It's time to replace some of my well-loved supplies!

I will be using the trays to help me organize our stations that we use each day during our literacy stations.

The children go from station to station every 15 minutes and have a job to do at each one. The materials are stored in these trays.

The tray organizer will be used for both station trays and writing papers. It's so fun to let the children choose different types of paper to write their books on and this organizer would help keep them tidy and easily accessible for the children.
