Mrs. Pervorse from San Jose CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Centered on Success!

My Students

I can't find my pencil. I lost my assignment. Where's my book? Does this sound like something you or one of your children have said? If so, you now know what my classroom can sound like when it's time for centers.

I am a third grade teacher getting ready for a yet another busy school year with an increased class-size.

I would like to help my students get the most out of their center time by having all necessary materials prepared and set up at each stop so that no students have to lose learning time hunting for a pencil, paper, or glue stick.

My Project

Imagine 34 8-year-olds all rotating around a classroom in small groups working on different tasks at each stop all at the same time. If not planned and prepared carefully ahead of time, this could become a chaotic situation. This is why I need your help! I would love to have bins and caddies to hold the supplies needed for each center so that students are using their class time in the most efficient and effective way possible. By having everything right there at a given center, students can start working and learning right away. There will be no need for digging through desks, wandering around the room, or interrupting a classmate to borrow something.

So here's your chance to make a difference in our class!

You can be the one to make our classroom run smoothly and stress-free. And the best part, your kindness will continue beyond this year into my future classes as well. Thank you for any help you can provide!
