Ms. Dobson from Tacoma WA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Basic Classroom Supplies for Organization and Fun!

My students need basic classroom supplies to help us keep learning and having fun in fourth grade.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I work at a Title I school located in Tacoma, Washington. My class is filled with bright students from diverse backgrounds who come to school excited to learn every day.

My students are future engineers, teachers, and politicians, and we are working hard in fourth grade to prepare for college, career, and citizenship.

Because of our diverse backgrounds, my students have diverse strengths and needs. I work hard to plan exciting activities and experiences to meet their needs every day.

My Project

These materials will help us organize our learning and use both sides of our brains. Clipboards will help us move around the room to facilitate discussions and exploration during reading and science. Whiteboard pockets will help scaffold our learning by being able to add appropriate inserts such as blank number lines or multiplication charts to aid us during math practice, as well as to keep all of our supplies in one place. Art supplies will allow us to demonstrate competencies in other areas, and give us a brain break after the hard work we do every day.

We need these supplies to help us stay calm and collected during the school day!
