Mrs. Harkins from New Haven CT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Differentiation and Organization are Key!

Help me give my students a mobile student work organizer so that they know where to find their own differentiated work.

My Students

My inner city students come from various backgrounds where English is not always their native language. We are a Title I school where our students receive 100% free breakfast and lunch. The children in my class come to school wanting to learn and work hard because school is a safe place for them and also one of their most favorite places to be. My students are eager readers who love to learn and be exposed to interesting topics. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are an inspiration to me and others around them every single day.

My Project

In my classroom I try to differentiate the work for my students as much as I can so that I am meeting their individual learning needs. This cart would make differentiating so much easier. Each student would know where to find their individual work and where to return it when it is completed.

The goal of a differentiated classroom is maximum student growth and individual success.

This cart will really help to make this happen. I do know what my students need but how to organize their work to make it easier for them and myself has been difficult. This cart would put an end to disorganization and each child will be getting exactly what they need. My students will grow from where they are to where they need to be. They will soar and experience individual success!
