Ms. Craven from Newport News VA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

I Can Learn While at Home!!

Help me give my students the supplies that they need to be successful. The primary journals are expensive and hard for parents to find. They are essential in learning how to write letters properly.

My Students

My students are in a collaborative Kindergarten class. There are 8 special education students and 12 general education students in our classroom. Our school is located in Newport News and is classified as a Title 1 school.

This year we are beginning our school year virtually.

For many of my students this is their first experience with formal school. Many of my students do not have the supplies that they need at home in order to learn.

My Project

The newsprint and journals will be sent home for student use. My co-teacher and I are preparing bags to send home for our students. The lines on this type of paper help students with proper letter formation.

We will be beginning the school year virtually.

The letter recognition and beginning sound packets we will use during our morning literacy groups with our students.

Letter recognition and identifying the beginning sounds in words are foundational in early literacy. I am so excited to share these with my kiddos. Thank you so much!
