Mrs. Davis from Spring Hill TN is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Color Coding for Success

My students need colored and plain copy paper to help keep them engaged in writing their notes and preparing for English projects.

  • $312 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Located in beautiful Tennessee, our students are highly motivated to succeed. We come from diverse backgrounds, yet have the same goal: to make a positive impact on our school and community and to grow to our full academic potential.

We are working hard to prepare for our TN Ready Assessments and our future English I high school classes.

Though we use technology in our classes, many students prefer to have a hard copy of assignments to take home and study.

My Project

Students will be able to use the copy paper supply to make their individual study packets for practice assessments and all the extra Project Based Learning activities to get them prepared for high school-level writing.

With 130 students, we go through paper quickly to ensure everyone has access to the text and materials.

Though we try to save and recycle paper as much as possible, we are currently out of our paper supply. This paper supply would effectively help us to stay on task and not lose the momentum we've gained in class thus far. Though it seems like a small item, having access to paper really makes a difference in the lives of our students.
