Mrs. Ferguson from Sumter SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Can You Hear Me Now?

My students need new headphones for their listening center that can be easily sanitized between uses. The two strategies books are a great way to individualize student learning.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom everyday full of life, ready to learn and excited for what is in store for them that day. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach at a Title One school in South Carolina where one hundred percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can, so they can be successful one day.

My Project

The headphones for the listening center are an easier and safer way for students to listen to tablets and boombox. Cheaper headphones with the cloth ear pieces tear and get lost easier. These set of headphones will fit their heads better. Plus they will be able to wipe them down between uses.

The Reading Strategies and Writing Strategies books are amazing resources for student learning.

This is an amazing way for me to make individualized plans for each student. Reading and writing are two of the most major components in a student's life when learning. When you help fund these projects, you are helping these students succeed.
