Ms. Gallagher from Philadelphia PA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hey Guys-We Need School Supplies!

My students need basic school supplies in order to not only function but thrive in the school setting. This includes pencils and a working pencil sharpener, highlighters, glue, scissors, art supplies, paper, folders, tissues and wipes.

My Students

7th and 8th grade can be an extremely challenging time both academically and personally, even more so when students lack the most basic school supplies. Students in my class have so much potential just waiting to be unlocked. As a teacher in a low-income school, I strive to ensure that my students are provided with an engaging and rigorous education that instills in them the passion to be lifelong learners.

Many of my students are designated Special Ed or ESOL and come from single-parent households.

Most of the textbooks in my classroom are as old as the students using them, and it shows. Because of this, most of what I teach comes directly from primary sources or other materials that I manipulate and copy for my students directly.

My Project

All students want to and deserve to learn. However, students often come to class without the supplies they need. Some students will sit down and do nothing because they are embarrassed to ask for something they do not have.

Not having the proper supplies shouldn't be a barrier to any student's learning.

By donating basic learning supplies to the classroom you will empower students to continue learning. Pencils and a pencil sharpener will be set up and available for any student who needs them. Students will no longer have to feel embarrassed to ask for something to write with.

Lined paper, highlighters, and index cards will allow students to take notes. Construction paper, poster board, scissors, glue, and markers will allow students to create projects that demonstrate and apply what they have learned.

Tissues and lysol wipes will help prevent germs from being spread around the room.

Students who do not have to worry or feel embarrassed about not having the supplies will be much more likely to learn!
