Ms. Phillips from Fairfield CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Just the Basics, Ma'am! We Need Some School Supplies

Help me give my students colored copies to keep them organized! We also need basic studying supplies like notecards, pencils, poster markers, and notetaking pens. We need sheet protectors and laminating for items we keep all year.

My Students

My students are a group of enthusiastic learners! My math, STEM and science classroom is filled with creativity and problem solving. In order to foster growth in these areas, our classroom needs just basic supplies.

My goal is to have supplies on hand for daily tasks and assignments, but to also have supplies to send home to those in need.

My students are a hardworking group that need supplies to meet the demand of their hardwork. The students are a group of diverse sixth graders from a suburban school containing approximately nine hundred students. It is a school with a large population and small budget. Teachers depend on donations for their classroom supples.

My Project

Transitioning 6th grades to middle school is a challenge. Materials in this project are for a number of classroom procedures. Students glue assignments into math and science journals, so they are handy for studying and don't get lost. We color code assignments with colored copy paper for ease to save time in the short time we have for math and science. Pencils because we don't do everything electronically! We need notecards, poster markers, and notetaking pens for those who don't have their own and need to borrow.

These materials will be used to help organize students and provide some basic study tools.

Sheet protectors are for reference handouts we need to keep all year! The pages can be colored coded so I can announce in the classroom, "Please take out your Math Study Schedule that is on the purple paper."
