Mr. Snyder from New York NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Books, Supplies, and More!

My students need a variety of resources including flexible seating, chart paper and whiteboard posters to help enhance their classroom environment, as well as some new books for our class library to help enrich their learning.

My Students

My students are fourth graders. They all live in an urban area. Additionally, they are motivated, and eager learners that love to read. Because I teach in a bilingual program, half my students come from Francophone families, and the other half comes from Anglophone families. They cooperate and support each other in learning how to read, write, and express themselves in two languages. By the end of elementary school, they will all be bilingual and bi-literate in French and in English.

My Project

My 4th Grade students need new supplies, books, and other tools to help them have a successful school year! The chart paper and whiteboard posters will get daily use to reinforce our lessons. The books are a mix of nonfiction and fiction that I am confident the students will enjoy this year. And finally, there is nothing like a big comfy chair to curl up into with a good book.

The tools and supplies I am requesting will help my students in many ways.

We will use these materials every day to aid us in the process of becoming lifelong learners and scholars. Thank you in advance for your generous support.
