Ms. Fullwood from Arlington VA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Back to the Basics!

Help me give my students the supplies they need! We can hardly believe that we are halfway through the year and with that we are in need of a few essentials like construction paper, command hooks, and laminating pouches.

My Students

I love having the opportunity to teach students who are eager to learn and chase their hopes and dreams!

My classroom includes a diverse group of twenty first graders with a wide range of skill levels and backgrounds.

In my classroom, you will find hardworking children who are learning English as a second language, children who qualify for free lunch, along with children who are challenged academically. My students are what give me a "why" each day and are inspirational!

My Project

Our classroom is in need of a midyear revamp! As the first half of our school year comes to an end, I have noticed that our basic classroom supplies are running low and need to be replaced.

We need the basics to continue enjoying our daily activities!

These include construction paper, pencils, and trays to hold our learning tools. We also need an electric stapler so my students can be independent during Writing Workshop. Additionally, I need velcro and laminating film to create interactive, hands-on activities for literacy and math workstations.

With the revamped classroom we will be set to finish our year engaged and ready to learn each day!
