Ms. Shepherd from Saint Louis MO is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to Basics

My students need basic school supplies to be successful in their educational endeavors. School boxes keep their supplies organized and mobile! Anchor paper helps me create reference points for them.

My Students

My students are hard-working, intelligent, creative, learners. They look adversity in the face every day and they come to school to learn and have fun. They love hands-on learning that allows them to be thinkers, creators, engineers, and innovators.

My goal is to create a learning environment that can best meet the needs of my creative learners.

The items I request for my students will aid them in being more successful in their learning endeavors. Basic supplies such as pencils are needed every day.

My Project

The materials I've picked out for my students are basic classroom materials that we will use all year round, and that we tend to run out of. The stools I've selected will be perfect for my small group table where I will get a chance to work with kids individually!

While papers and pencils are great, so are dry erase markers and white boards.

I use a variety of ways to assess my students, so a variety of materials are necessary.

These basic school supplies will allow my students to work hard without the stress of not the having supplies they need.
