Ms. Greenan from Canoga Park CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

In Need of Basic Supplies

My students need basic supplies such as pencils, erasers, post-it notes and pencil sharpeners. We use post-it notes daily to record our thoughts and ideas when we read and we are out of supplies!

My Students

I teach a group of inspirational fourth graders. Our school is a charter school with many low-income families. One of our school's core values is: "Doing extra makes a difference." Each student lives up to this in their own special way. We focus on doing extra in and out of our classroom.

There are days where we get overwhelmed and stressed out because there is so much to learn!

We often listen to music to help calm down. Some days we even do yoga and meditation.

I am excited to get this school year off to a great start and I want my students to have everything they need for upcoming art projects.

My Project

With a higher class size, but the same budget we are really feeling the crunch this year. We have worked every pencil down to the nub but we still are almost out. Erasers too!

Post-it notes make a big difference for my growing readers.

Every time they pick up a book they use post its to take notes. We do a lot of reading and so we use a ton of post it notes every day. The kids keep these notes after they finish their books and arrange them into categories to help them better comprehend what they have read.
