Mrs. Gauthier from Chicopee MA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Desperately Seeking: Centers!

My students need reusable, engaging learning centers to reinforce lessons they’ve learned. We need a laminator, laminator pouches, lapboards, folder games, Write & Wipe pockets, and fluency puzzles.

My Students

I am a general education teacher. I work with students with disabilities and those who are at risk for failure due to gaps in their education. About 70% of my students come from low-income homes.

In spite of that, they are hard working, dedicated and eager to learn.

I've been teaching for a long time, and I would love to be able to give my students engaging, organized and worthwhile centers they can enjoy all year long!

My Project

My students work hard all day learning new challenging curriculum. Part of their day is center time. I make a lot of my centers to go with what skills we’re working on, so a laminator and pouches will keep them reusable for years to come.

I am looking for engaging centers that will provide the chance for my students to socialize with other students while reviewing skills they have learned.

Learning centers will give my students much needed practice on reading, math, and socialization!

My students and I thank you for supporting our classroom by funding these new amazing centers!
