Ms. Bourret from Chicago IL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to School Bonanza

My students need various learning materials and resources to help keep them engaged throughout the day! Overall, everything I am asking for is something that will enhance the educational experience for each student individually!

My Students

Ours is a large public school in Chicago. Within this school is a classroom designated for those that require the most attention and care... ours! Our classroom is made up of diverse learners of differing abilities ranging between kindergarten to 3rd grade.

Each student in our classroom is encouraged to learn and grow beyond what they think is expected of them.

The students of our classroom might be small in number, but we have big goals for this school year!

My Project

The materials that I am requesting are all things that will help our students better transition from summer to the beginning of a new school year! Things such as construction paper, folders, and other materials will help to establish our focus and maintain it for the rest of the year. Other materials, such as printer paper, expo markers, and an easel pad are all things that are needed for the classroom, but aren’t provided to teachers at the beginning of the year. Overall, our request will help us start the year off right and keep us moving in that direction for the rest of the school year! Thank you!
