Mrs. Criminger from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Interact With Learning: The Bare Necessities

My students need notebooks, dry erase markers and chart paper to make learning interactive and fun.

  • $275 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are high-energy and love to learn. They come from low-income households, and many speak English as their second language. They are determined to learn, despite their difficulties.

My goal is to give these students the best foundation I can so that they are able to impact the world!

This foundation includes foundational mathematical and writing skills, along with reading, science and social studies. In order for students to show their learning, we need basic supplies. This Donor's Choose project outlines the bare necessities: the supplies I need to teach, but just aren't provided.

My Project

My project seeks to fulfill a need for interactive learning supplies. Every day my students solve problems with dry erase markers, reference large posters we create to facilitate learning or use their interactive math notebooks. The sad truth is these are supplies that we need to learn, but just don't have.

Your support will help students learn in an engaging and fun way.

When students create, they are learning in an entirely different way. We will use the chart paper to make posters. The notebooks are for our interactive mathematical learning. The students will have them to look back on, when they need assistance with a particular type of math problem. Dry erase markers help us practice all of the skills, from sentence writing, to math to sketching out a tower prior to it's creation. Although basic, these are supplies to help us learn and grow.
