Mrs. Waniewski from Bossier City LA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the writing tools and dry erase boards they need to complete classroom activities.
Creative and busy--that's a typical day. I only get one and a half hours with each of my three classes a day. By the end of the year, I want all of my students to achieve their academic potential and learn science by completing hands-on activities.
My students are eager to learn, eager to work, and eager to become scientists.
Our school is blessed to have over 800 neighborhood children as well as many military children from our local Air Force Base. In fact, our school enrollment includes 32% military students.
Our school has such a great reputation because of our high academic expectations as well as receiving an "A" rating from our state department; we are a highly desired location for military families that get stationed at our local military base. The school population is also multi-cultural with students coming from many different ethnic backgrounds.
But everything is not all rosy, and there is a growing population of lower economic students who are attending our school. They require interventions to be successful and exposure to a wide variety of science activities to encourage each student's success.
There are never enough school supplies to make it through the year without restocking. Basic classroom supplies are consumable and often lost.
Every day provides challenges in the classroom to make sure all students are prepared with basic classroom supplies like erasers, dry erase boards, Expo markers, and colorful pens to have a successful school day.
In math, we need more dry erase boards and Expo markers to work out problems, to show the teacher quickly if there is understanding of a math concept, and often to work on assignments with a peer.
In math and ELA we need more erasers because let's face it everyone makes mistakes. As a result, the eraser container dwindles very quickly.
The colorful pens are used as a visual for when I monitor my students' work and give feedback.
