Mrs. Williams from Atlanta GA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarten Success With the Basics!

Help me give my students much needed supplies (folders, glue, soap, paper towels and headphones), as we are out of most of these items. The other items are needed for hands-on projects and other classroom assignments.

My Students

My students are very active and hard working from the moment they walk into the classrooms, until it is time and to go home. Their enthusiasm for learning is apparent when walking down the halls. Our students come from various backgrounds, mostly low income. Teaching children from across the globe who speak little to no English is a challenge, but the one thing we all have in common is that we're excited about learning.

I have 18 beautiful children in Kindergarten who come from different parts of Central and South America.

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.

My Project

We have run out of basic supplies. My lessons are designed to include hands on projects. The items that I am requesting will help me execute lessons that are creative and engaging. The glue, post it notes, and googly eyes will be used on engaging hands on literacy and art projects that align to the lessons. The soap and paper towels will be used everyday to keep hands clean and germs free. The pens and colored bins will be used to color code writing prompts. My students will have new folders to replace worn out writing folders. We are in desperate need of headphones for our Listening Center and computer time. The bins I ordered will be used to organize our Listening Center books. Name tags and lanyard will be used for student ID and field trips. I would also like to display my student's work. Hot glue is the only thing that will stick to the wall. The cordless glue gun will give me the mobility I need to hang up their work. These items will keep my students actively engaged and will encourage them to continue working hard to achieve their goals.
