Mrs. Gordon from Poplar Bluff MO is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Covering the Basics

Help me give my students basic supplies! My manual pencil sharpener often does not work and students have to visit other classrooms to use their sharpeners! I really need an electric sharpener. We also need tape for projects.

My Students

Curious, enthusiastic, and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any challenge, especially those involving classroom technology.

My students work hard when they are given the tools needed to be successful.

I hope through DonorsChoose.org to find resources to enhance learning within my classroom and help students to think and reason as global citizens.

Currently, my classroom is needing basic supplies such as headphones and tape. I am requesting headphones, tape, a tape dispenser, and electric pencil sharpener for my classroom.

My Project

My students use a lot of tape for projects and hanging work up for display. We often use headphones for online learning and many students depend on my personal headphones which are starting to fall apart. My kids also desperately want a better pencil sharpener! (You know it's bad when kids are asking to sharpen pencils in other classrooms!) We really need basic headphones, tape, tape dispenser, and a new pencil sharpener!

I greatly appreciate any donation toward meeting the needs of our classroom.

There are so many things I'd like to have in my room or would love to have to teach my students, but first I need my basic supply needs met.
