Mrs. Suzzi Valli from Bay Shore NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Our terrific students are a diverse group of children who have a thirst for knowledge.

We live in an amazing community where children come from all walks of life.

The students in our building come to us from many parts of the world. We differentiate instruction, celebrate diversity and aim to include technology throughout the curriculum. These wonderful students take pride in their learning, their classroom, and their school. Each day, these children come to class eager to learn with huge smiles on their faces.

My Project

The supplies that I am requesting are basic essential supplies that the children need for both Shared Reading and Writer's Workshop.

The goal is for my fabulous first graders to be immersed in the reading and writing process throughout the day.

They will use the highlighter tape during Shared Reading to highlight letters, patterns in words, punctuation and word beginnings and endings to name a few.

During Writer's Workshop, the children will use the hanging file folders to keep their writing organized. They will also use colored paper, the date stamp and mini staplers to help create their stories, and feel what it's like to an author. The children will choose their favorite stories to publish, and the cover will be laminated for the children to keep forever!
