Mrs. Deutsch from Baltimore MD is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back To School Basics

My students need supplies to get the 2018-2019 school year off to a great start. There are materials that will keep our classroom organized, help us complete group work, and become better readers and writers!

My Students

My students come to school each day eager for knowledge and are excited and eager learners in the heart of Baltimore. They are passionate about exploring and making sense of the world around them. They come into the classroom each day with the motivation and determination to grasp something that they did not know the day before.

I teach at a school where 70% of the population is learning English as a second language.

Almost every student at my school qualifies to receive free or reduced lunch. Many of my students have come to this country to get a quality education. Their motivation for learning is inspiring. My students deserve all of the resources and expereinces to help them make the most of their time at school.

My Project

Having the proper supplies at the beginning of the school year will set my new 5th graders up for a successful year. We will use the folders to store and organize all of the awesome work we complete. Keeping our work will allow us to see the incredible academic growth we make. Chart paper and markers will allow me to to make bright process charts for all the exciting things we are learning. These charts will help students to remember important information. Students will also get to use the chart paper and markers to display their learning. The write and wipe pouches will be a fun way for my students to display their learning and will make it easy for me to check in on students' progress toward our daily objectives. Various read aloud books that correspond to our curriculum have been included. Read alouds will make my students more excited about our learning. Additional supplies like pencil sharpeners, erasers, reinforcements, hole punches, labels, and tape will be used daily to keep us organized.
