Mrs. Barrett from Hallsville TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Basic Classroom Supplies Help Us Create!

Help me give my students basic writing instruments with vibrant colors and card stock for classroom projects. Lamination sheets and colored paper also help our classroom function as we make many hands on learning projects with our students.

My Students

My students are such a joy to work with! They each have multiple and severe disabilities that affect their life in many ways, yet the first thing you notice is their smiles and happiness. Often they experience many combined conditions that affect gross motor, fine motor, speech, sensory processing, and social skills along with others. They are so full of wonder and curiosity, and they want to learn just like the other kids!

My students need basic classroom supplies to be able to make projects to express their learning!

My greatest challenge is providing meaningful, hands-on, multi-sensory learning opportunities that target all areas of my students' lives. I love seeing their faces light up over learning games and projects and reading!

My Project

Vibrant colors help my students focus and engage with writing and creating classroom projects that mean something to them. They may not participate in learning activities like worksheets, but they can help make things with their hands that help them express their learning.

Basic classroom supplies help my students bring their learning to life in creative expressions unique to each of my students.

The items in this project will help them have a choice of paper or card stock, choice of which type of writing utensil, and the option to laminate and store their projects neatly. What seems like a small thing is really a huge thing when basic supplies run low. This project would supply my students with what they need.
