Ms. McIntyre from Philadelphia PA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Daily Resources and Tools!

Help me give my students folders for each subject, pencils for daily use, and duck tape for decoration in classroom. The folders can add up quickly but are necessary to keep work collected and organized.

My Students

Hello! My 3rd grade scholars are the brightest most energetic scholars that I have had the pleasure of teaching! They are curious, determined, and eager to learn. My scholars want to be engineers, scientists, writers, artists, athletes, lawyers, and leaders in government! The best part- they will become all of these things!

The future is in each one of them.

It is in each and every one of my scholars. It is in their brains, their passions, their determination, and their eagerness to make great change and progress. My scholars need to be prepared and given the same opportunities as any other scholar. This is necessary through resources. Please help us so that one day they can help the world.

My Project

These materials will make my scholars successful in everyday life. My scholars are in need of basic tools needed to focus on their education. These tools include folders, pencils, and duck tape for their decoration and fixing existing tools. My scholars struggle daily to find pencils and folders based on the lack of funds in school and at home.

Please assist my scholars in being successful by having everyday tools.

Pencils and folders are basic, but scarce in our classroom. These scholars deserve every opportunity to focus and progress without the worry if a pencil will be present. Pencils will be used for writing and drawing while folders will be used for organization and transportation.
