Mrs. Frank from Columbus OH is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Just the Basics!

My students need duct tape, an easy to use pencil sharpener and cardstock for all our projects this year.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school, I see that my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Every year, I have at least one student who is homeless. I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.

They like to move and read, and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free breakfast and lunch.

From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can control their experiences during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Our school does an amazing job supplying each teacher with everything they need to teach: pencils, crayons, and glue galore.

To make learning fun and engaging, I need a little more.

My students this year are fiercely independent. They love to sharpen their own pencils (and I don't!) but our manual sharpener doesn't work so well any more. We do tons of projects so that each subject can be presented in an eye catching and fun way. We need lots of cardstock for these projects. We start our writing with a Boot Camp. This is so much fun and they work so hard. It would be great to have plenty of paper to work with.
