Mrs. Chen from San Francisco CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Engaging Books and Art Supplies!

Help me give my students some fun graphic novels to read. The students enjoy reading when they have engaging age appropriate books. The art supplies will also be so great for the students to have some fun!

My Students

Our public elementary school has a high percentage of English language learners who come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Over 90% of the students in my school community qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. All of my students come from different backgrounds. They are all eager to learn.

My Project

These books will continue to enhance the print-rich classroom that I strive to create. My classroom library is a place that my students really enjoy-I read on the carpet to them, they complete work there, and they read independently! Every student book that is placed in my library is treated with love and care, and they are thankful for the opportunities to read. The art supplies will be engaging for the students. They paper maker will be a class project. They will also love the Crayola crayon sharpener and will be so excited to use it! The
