Mrs. Ash from Glendale AZ is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Capture Learning with Writing

My students need paper to aid in their learning by taking notes, write essays, and more. The different color pens will be able to help students visualize steps in math and visualize different pats of sentences.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are amazing because they come from a variety of backgrounds with most having their parents or guardians working multiple jobs to give them things they need or want. Those students work hard and try their best. Those backgrounds are rough but give them a desire to do better.

My students try and succeed with what little they have at home and in the classroom.

They are working towards an unknown future, but working hard on having a better future.

My Project

My students need paper to use for writing and taking notes. Students also need expo markers to aid in their understanding and review of math facts during lessons (example would be checking their understanding during the lesson before moving on).

My students need these items to show them that different materials exist so that they can succeed (besides the traditional pencil and paper).

Pens and markers will aid in reports and projects and engage students further. These items will help my students demonstrate their understanding from exit tickets to interactive anchor charts and more!
