Ms. Ciaburri from Brooklyn NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Active Learners Require Proper Tools

My students need materials, such as pencils, paper, and glue sticks, to get through the school day. The student do a lot of work in class and want it to be displayed on a beautiful bulletin board for all to see.

My Students

The students I teach require more individual attention than student who are in a general education class. I would describe the students in my classroom as authentic, kind hearted, helpful and respectful. The students in my class all have very unique personalities. They all contribute to the classroom in different ways. They walk into the classroom everyday ready to learn and ready to do their best. I try my best as a teacher to be as supportive and accommodating as I can.

My Project

My students are extremely proud of all they accomplish in the classroom. These items will allow my students to show off their work! My students work on numerous activities throughout week, which require an abundance of supplies. Also, projects are a big hit in this classroom! Projects require a lot of supplies where students can express their creativity. It is vital to keep supplies such as pencils, expo markers, glue, and construction paper in stock so the students can enhance their thinking through activities. My students enjoy that much more than looking through a textbook.

When my students complete an assignment, they are eager to share it with everyone.

If we receive bulletin board paper and borders, staff members and other students can walk past the bulletin board and admire their work. It will also allow their work to be displayed throughout the classroom. Colored paper will help our work to stand out in the hallways of the school. The classroom contains four bulletin boards to display math, reading, social studies, and science work. At the end of the day, my students have the opportunity to go to the bulletin board and observe work done by their peers.
