Mrs. Ross from Fort Worth TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Class supplies to further our MIND

My students need CLASSROOM SUPPLIES to successfully learn every day. It is very difficult to be able to follow through on our classroom routines set at the beginning of the year when we run out things. WE need markers, glue, crayons and more.

My Students

My students come from different backgrounds, and are usually low income and economically disadvantaged. They are little kids with adult-like problems being heaped on them every day. It sometimes makes for difficult transitions to school and challenging behaviors. This year I will also be teaching our dual language population which has the added challenge of learning in two languages, Spanish and English.

I want to bring a LOT of child-like joy back into their lives, during the time they are with me.

By doing this, I provide for them a safe place to grow, learn, develop, and ask questions. We, together, as a class, learn a lot socially and academically. We strive to be the best class we can be and learn how to be little learners in a BIG world!

This year our goal that will drive us is, "We are career bound!"

My Project

In our class we do a lot of quick check work so I can see where the students are in their understanding of concepts. We use dry erase markers EVERY DAY to do this. As you can imagine we run out of these supplies often.

We use dry erase markers and glue every single day; sometimes the school office has run out and has to wait to order them again.

We are then stuck without for awhile. I am hoping this project will set us up to where we have some in storage for those times when our school runs out of materials.
