Mrs. Henson from Ellijay GA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to School Basics

Help me give my students the peace of mind of knowing they will be provided with back to school necessities when they arrive in class, such as pencils, erasers, markers, and organizational bins.

My Students

I teach in a rural elementary school in beautiful North Georgia. A typical day includes around 60 students transitioning in-and-out of my classroom. Many of my learners are diverse and all have big hearts. My goal is to be able to tailor our classroom learning environment to meet my student's needs.

Eager, curious, inspirational students inspire me to offer each of them the most.

Providing my students with the opportunity to feel prepared with supplies they need will help them to discover and explore even more!

My Project

The use of pencils, whiteboard markers, erasers, and anchor charts are a few of the things that are used daily in almost any activity in my classroom. Having the supplies that students need will provide a peace of mind for students when they enter the classroom.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them the necessities in order to meet each students needs.

Specifically, the anchor chart paper is used for almost every lesson within our classroom.

I believe that having these items readily available in the classroom will impact my students and cannot wait to watch them grow into successful learners with the necessary items in hand daily!
