Mrs. R. from Chicago IL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need basic school supplies such as pencils, markers, chart tablets and paper.
My second-grade students come from low-income households and all receive free lunch. I provide them with a rigorous curriculum to keep them challenged. As a result, they have earned the highest school rating this past school year. Our school goal is to provide our students with the best learning environment so that they can have continued success.
Meeting the needs of my thirty plus diverse students is a daily challenge.
Student abilities vary from high achieving to students with learning disabilities. Our classroom learning environment is centered around small group instruction so that learning can be extended and tailored to meet the needs of every student. Differentiating their learning is necessary so all students can find success at their own pace.
Due to our decreasing school budget and students who come from low income households, purchasing basic school supplies for dozens of students can get expensive. I am not requesting anything fancy, just basic supplies that my students will use every day in various subjects such as pencils, markers, chart tablets, and paper. Students are always excited to begin the school year. Everything is fresh and new from the classroom decor, teacher, friends and of course, new school supplies. Some families are just not able to provide these supplies for their children due to their finances. My goal is to provide these supplies to all students who need them. These supplies will be part of our classroom supplies community and all students will have access to them for both school and homework use. I strongly believe that every child should have access to whatever they need to help them succeed this school year.
