Mr. Laws from Greensboro NC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Basic Tools for Fantastic Learners

My students need some real tools, white boards and wipe-off pockets, to make our interactive learning a little easier, and these specialized manipulatives will give them some concrete help.

My Students

My school has a dynamic learning environment where we empower all students to become independent thinkers.

My pre-k class is creative, curious, and talented individuals.

They love to share and are hungry for knowledge! I work with amazing students that come from a variety of backgrounds. They love coming to school every day and learning, and I want to ensure they have all the necessary materials to be successful not only at school but at home, as well.

There is a wide range of reading abilities in my classroom, and I desperately need more books at various levels to accommodate their needs.

My Project

My incoming pre-k class are active, tactile learners. They enjoy using tools to explore new concepts. They are working to build their academic language toolbox as well. We are a strong community of helpers who love to be recognized for giving our best efforts.

These students are so excited to work toward being independent problem-solvers!

I'm so excited to have this group of young people coming to my classroom this fall!

The white boards will help the students learn how to write their names, help them learn how to start to count, and they will be used in our small groups daily.

This year we struggled a bit trying to make sure we had enough sets of manipulatives, paper-saving tools, and math tools to get hands-on learning going. Having to cut out fraction strips, place value sets, and similar tools has been frustrating due to time constraints!

There are never enough minutes in the day for me or the students! If we cut down on prep time, we'll all be able to focus on the tasks at hand and get the most out of our limited minutes!

We are in need of fractions kits that are accurate, instead of self-cut paper sets, whiteboards for answer showing, write & wipe pockets, for saving paper, and for games to keep the learning tactile and fun!
