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

Just the Basics

My students need some basic supplies, like markers, Sharpies, a stapler, and tape.

My Students

My students are truly the nicest kids you could ever meet. Despite any obstacle, my students may face they come to school eager to learn each and every single day.

Our school is truly the most diverse school I have ever seen.

I have children that come from many different cultures, languages, religions, abilities and socio-economic statuses. I strive to make my classroom a happy and welcoming place that shows them that all people can work, learn and grow together.

My Project

My class could use some basic supplies. We need Sharpie and Mr. Sketch markers to make posters, charts and to make our work visually appealing! We can also use a new stapler, binder clips, scissors, and Post-it notes to share. We use these to save pages in our books, jot down notes, collect class data and to answer exit tickets. We could also use a desktop file sorter to sort our papers per class so it is easier to find and collect work. I'm also requesting a wastebasket, tape dispenser, desk organizer, and colored paper.

These new materials will help start our new year right.

We can all be organized with fully functioning materials from the very first day.
