Ms. V. from Bronx NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative Outlet

My students need these art and crafts supplies so they can have something to do during recess. We only have art once a week, and they are very creative children that need this outlet.

My Students

My students are amazing, although they come from a low income inner city environment, I can see so much potential in them. They come to school everyday to learn and grow and be the best they can be. My co teacher and I try to give them the best education but sometimes it hard without materials. We both came into this classroom in January. We did not have the basic things needed (glue, scissors, paper, crayons) Then we noticed behavioral problems (lack of routine and love they did not get from the subs that were placed in the room). We have been purchasing these materials out of pocket because we know the students deserve the best we can give them.

My Project

Our students are very creative and need this outlet. We did a project with them before the break and quickly realized most of them could not cut or glue. We only have art once a week and they only color and draw.

We would like the students to do at least one project a week where they have to cut and glue by following directions.

During free play the students have expressed interest in using dry erase boards to color and draw.

For math we also use the dry erase markers during whole group instruction to make it more enjoyable for the students.
