Ms. Scheele from Burien WA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Items for a New 5th/6th-Grade Classroom!

My students need materials for a brand new 5/6th-grade math/science classroom!

My Students

My classroom is located in Washington state at a Title One school. Students at my school are hardworking, kind, eager individuals. Many students are first and second generation citizens from Africa, South America and Asia. About forty-two percent of students qualify for English Language Learner services, but up to fifty percent of students speak a language other than English in the home. Our differing cultures, backgrounds, economic statuses and languages provide richness in the classroom, but we also face challenges. One challenge is that we are incredibly underfunded. At our school, eighty-three percent of our students qualify for free or reduced price school lunch.

There are so many experiences and learning opportunities I wish I could have with our students if only I had the means.

My Project

I'll be teaching 2 brand new math/science 5th/6th grade and 6th-grade classes next year. The switch from 2nd to intermediate is going to be big. I need quite a few new materials to meet my students' needs.

Help put these great materials into the hands of children.

We need clipboards that will double duty as whiteboards. We need mailboxes to house student work and important papers, a magnetic spinner to sort kids into "houses" for classroom mgmt and other classroom engagement activities, a box light for students to write motivating messages on, the pie face game to use during review, tape lights, and two wonderful math books- If: A Mind-Bending New Way of Looking at Big Ideas and Numbers and Last to Finish, A Story About the Smartest Boy in Math Class. Thank you in advance for your support!
