Mrs. Barry-Hansen from Oakland CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Extravagant Essentials

My students need color pens, paper, whiteboard supplies and pencil sharpeners to get creative with their STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Math) collaboration projects.

My Students

Our students come from many diverse backgrounds. 100% of our students receive a free lunch. We attend an inner city school, where more than half of the students commute for the education we provide. We have healthy foods and a garden, and we speak seven different languages at home.

Our school is a bright, happy place where a university education is our goal!

Students learn in classrooms where experience solidifies the curriculum! Our walls are covered in student innovation and creativity! Students are always encouraged to voice their opinion!

My Project

Each year my 5th graders work so hard to master the Common Core Standards. They understand that their class projects prepare them for their academic future, and achieving their dreams. When they make dioramas, reports, science fair projects, debate signs, and timelines, they are given time to make their projects stand out.

We are asking the students to be creative with their STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Math) collaboration projects.

Having the requested supplies such as quality pens, paper, whiteboard supplies and pencil sharpeners will help motivate the students to present quality work.
