Ms. Rodgers from Bartow FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Being Organized is Being in Control

My students need binders and pencil pouches in order to stay organized and carry materials between classes at school and between home and school. This will also allow them to transport their agenda between all areas.

My Students

I teach a resource class of 2nd through 5th grade students with disabilities. My students require direct, specialized instruction for reading, writing, and mathematics in order to meet not only grade level academic goals but their individual education plan goals.

My students have a difficult time learning in a traditional classroom and this is why they are pulled out and into my classroom.

Their lack of academic skills and successful learner behaviors has severely impacted their learning and the majority are working at least 2 or more years below grade level.

My Project

My students have multiple teachers during the school day and require additional materials to assist them in being organized. Three ring binders will allow the students to carry important materials, including their agendas, between classes as well as between school and home. The 3 ring pencil pouches will allow the students to always have pencils, erasers, and other needed items with them in different classes and at home.

My students require additional organizational supports in order to be successful in the classroom.

Without these supports they will continue to be unsuccessful in a school setting and unable to focus on what is most important at school, learning.
