Ms. Ceron from Somerville MA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Flexible Classroom

Help me give my students flexible learning. The easels will help easily create diverse learning spaces and increase student participation and engagement in the lessons. The bean bag and sand will create a cool-down area.

My Students

I am excited to be starting my first year in Somerville Public Schools. This year I will have the privilege of working with a class of English Language Learners to help them grow in literacy and math. I can't wait to meet my diverse set of students!

Although I have not met my little kiddos yet, I am excited to get to know them over the next two years!

Our school has a looping model, so I will stay with these students from first to second grade. I am excited to see how much they grow within that span.

My Project

Help me create a welcoming, varied space for my students next year! As I begin my first year at a new school, I need some classroom supplies to help make the space a place where students can be productive and successful.

I love to switch up the learning formats we use in the classroom from whole group instruction to partner work to small group, and I need some pieces to make this possible.

As my new room has no whiteboards, the easels will allow me to have a space during both whole group and small group to use visuals and engage my students.

My students were really successful with our chill zone last year, and I want to recreate that for my new students. The been bag and kinetic sand will give students a space to calm down when they're having a hard time regulating their emotions. Some students need support more often, so I am also hoping on getting cushions to help those students that have a hard time sitting still during instruction.
