Mrs. Cromwell from Walnut Creek CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Colorful Classroom with Art and Reading

Help me give my students a color printer, art supplies, and more books to help make colorful things for our classroom. We don't have access to a color printer at school so this will tremendously help us.

My Students

I have a diverse group of students who are very energetic and each bring their own unique personality to the classroom. They enjoy a wide variety of learning materials to peak their interest and to help them grow. Most of the students in my class are beginning readers, some are struggling readers and some are advanced readers.

Unfortunately, as a newer teacher, my first graders need supplies and experiences that I can’t provide on my own.

My students love coming to school because I make learning fun and I would love to equip them with tools to help them learn independently as well as in small groups. They work hard each and every day which is why I would like to have colored activities for them when they are working in small groups.

My Project

These items will help me give my students the color they need during station work and allow for me to create individualized, differentiated, and engaging station work activities that meet the needs of all my students.

The printer, art paper, and books will help me create engaging activities that look appealing to my students and will have them excited to learn at a level that meets their learning ability.

These materials will allow me to create multiple activities in various subject areas that are similar but also differentiated to meet their learning ability, giving them many opportunities to practice skills taught within the classroom.

Having a working paper cutter allows me to prepare materials for my students so that they can be more engaged.
