Mrs. Garceau from Worcester MA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a supply of regular, plain pencils and erasers to succeed in their writing and math!
Hello! The students I am privileged to work with are some of the most special, hard-working, inspiring children I have ever met. I work in an inner-city school where some of my students are facing challenges as an adult I feel are difficult to overcome.
A majority of the students in our school are considered economically disadvantaged and live in low-income housing; however, many of these students come to school eager to learn and excited to participate in all academic activities presented to them.
It is my wish to provide them with an education they deserve and be able to give them the necessary materials needed in order to do so. In other words, I want their creativity and intelligence to continually grow!
My 1st grade students need pencils and erasers because my classroom practices lots of writing and math. These are the traditional #2 yellow pencils, and some come slightly thicker so students can have a better grip.
Since my students seek to excel, they practice lots of addition and subtraction – often erasing the wrong answer and re-writing it with the correct one.
Therefore, lots of pencils and erasers are needed. They also come in handy during testing season also! An electric pencil sharpener and stapler is a plus as well! The amount of pencils and erasers requested is for the entire school year! Your donation will help us achieve our goal together!
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
