Mrs. Jones from Pocola OK is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let Them Show How They Shine; We Need Portfolios

My students need binders and dividers for storing their work! I want to have portfolios of each student to show how much they have learned to their parents and to motivate the students as well!

My Students

My students are working very hard to set up our new classroom! This is their last year in elementary and they will be learning how to rotate classes before middle school. The kids are the same age as my son and I have known most of them since preschool! That's why it is very important for me to make this an amazing school year and prepare them properly for being middle school students! I believe that with the proper classroom materials, we will achieve all our goals!

My Project

Our students need binders to show off their work performance and to see how much they can achieve with hard work and determination! Also, we want to show off each student's achievements to the parents!

We need binders, sheets, and dividers for each student.

This will encourage even more hard work when the students see they have reached their goals and overcome obstacles throughout the school year!

This is their last year in elementary and I want to ensure that they learn and grow before moving up to a new challenge; middle school. Thank you so much for your help and support!
