Mrs. Shepherd from West Union SC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students dry erase boards, markers, and erasers along with new scissors, sharpies, and pens.
"People who hurt people hurt people." "We should learn from history, so we don't repeat the same mistakes." "If you believe in yourself, you will accomplish your dreams." "Real friends love you for who you are and you shouldn't try to be someone else." These are all quotes from my fifth grade ELA classes in rural South Carolina. We are a group of caring, loving, aspiring students that love to learn with a combination of ESOL students, students with special needs, students that have difficult home lives, and all of those in between.
Our classroom becomes a safe place on a level playing field in which we strive to think deeper academically while also challenging ourselves to grow our character and make a positive mark on the world.
We sometimes leave our worries at the door, while other times we bring them right in and embrace them.
We use dry erase boards every day in Math. Unfortunately, the boards we have are old and don’t erase well. We are also shy of having enough for everyone in the class. Students use the boards daily during independent practice, while working in small guided groups with Mrs. Shepherd, and when playing games that reinforce our learning. By donating to this project, you will also be supplying us with new dry erase markers (we use them so much that they often run out of ink!), erasers (the very few we have now are old and falling apart...Mrs. Shepherd has seen us use our jacket sleeves to erase our boards!), and some extras that we could use to make class time more efficient: scissors, sharpies, and pens.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
