Ms. Beltran from Brooklyn NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Essentially, We Need the Essentials!

Help me give my students the essentials! Things like glue and laminating sheets are items we always need, yet never have enough of, and our old (broken) easel is in desperate need of being replaced!

My Students

My lovely group of students is a very diverse bunch. Some are just beginning to start their career as little learners and some have been in school for one or two years already.

That is just the beginning of their differences.

Some may be wondering why my class size is so small. To answer that question, my students are in district 75, which is a specialized school district that tailors especially to special needs students. One key attribute is small class sizes. The maximum number of students in any district 75 class is twelve. This ensures that all of these kiddies get the individualized attention and instruction that they need to succeed.

Eventually, these little learners may move from a class of six to a class of eight or a class of twelve! The best way for this to happen is for them to be able to take advantage of all that I, and their support team, have to offer.

My Project

These items will help us get off to a great start. The popsicle games will help us review our letters and numbers, and the paint will allow us to get creative!

The items we most need are laminating sheets and velcro!

These allow me to create fun activities for my students, and this past year I went through over four packs of laminating sheets, and five boxes of velcro.

I use chart paper to create fun and informative anchor charts that my students use to remind them of key parts of our lesson, but it's getting harder to display them on our old, and worn easel. These items will help us kick off our new year with ease!
