Classroom Essentials!

My students need mailboxes and seat sacks to keep their classwork and supplies, individual whiteboards, dry erase markers, and scissors.

My Students

My students try their best to keep their desks neat and turn in their homework on time, but my classroom lacks a good place for students to store all of papers we go through each day. We're also lacking a couple other classroom essentials that my students can't afford to buy for themselves.

I teach a class of 29 bright and eager scholars.

Our school is in its first year of a turnaround operation. My students have a lot of progress to make by the end of the year to be ready for 4th grade. Most of my students are at least one year behind grade level, and some are two or more years behind grade level.

My Project

It's crucial for my students to keep their papers organized so that I can grade and track their progress. Mailboxes and seat sacks are the perfect solution to this problem. My students will have a special place to put all of their papers so that they will not get lost, shuffled, or thrown away! My students work hard during class and have a lot of evidence to show for this, and I hate to see their hard work becoming trash because there is no good place to put it! Individual whiteboards, dry erase markers, and scissors are three essential classroom resources that I've been lacking. Having all of these things opens the door for more creative projects and activities. Having these resources will also help to reduce fighting over the scarce supplies in my room!

Most of my kids can't afford their own school supplies.

I am happy to provide them what I can, but unfortunately I'm not able to give them everything they need. Many of my students don't have backpacks, so oftentimes there are problems with students failing to bring homework to and from school. I want to provide my students with the resources they need to set them up for success. A good storage place for their work and a few new supplies will go a long way in my classroom!
