Mrs. Kirby from Campobello SC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kirby's Colorful Classroom

Help me give my students the resources they need to create beautiful hands-on projects and the ability to learn with games that allow them to engage in active lessons to move around the classroom.

My Students

I teach 78 5th grade students how to read and write. But most importantly we learn how to LOVE to read! With this being our main goal, we are lovers of books! My students are learning that books can take them anywhere they want to go.

I am so blessed to teach these wonderful young people!

They have a willingness to learn and strive for success. As we strive to succeed, we always put our best attitude and foot forward!

My Project

These materials will allow my students to create colorful projects and writing materials.

The students will be able to create posters and anchor charts to be displayed around the room.

The students will then be able to use these anchor charts to help them remember and apply the material that is learned in class. The students will use the astro-bright paper to create colorful projects and backgrounds for their creative writing stories.

Out paper supply runs out quickly throughout the year due to all the learning that is taking place in our class. We will use the paper for many hands on projects and activities to better our learning!
