Ms. R. from Chandler AZ is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Get Down to Language!

My students need a magnetic whiteboard to be used as a grammar wall in order to study sentences closely and interactively. The magnets are for the interactive grammar pieces.

My Students

As a teacher at a low-income school, my world has been completely turned over time and time again. I grew up in the same city where I work but had no idea the challenges children were facing only a few miles down from my high school. The children I work with have been through more than their fair share of challenges by the time they reach my classroom in 6th grade. It's hard to relate to children with such hardships, and even harder to teach students when school is the last thing on their list of things to accomplish.

Teaching with love is my ultimate philosophy-- and these kids need love more than anything.

By the time students at my school are in 6th grade, they're already falling behind their peers at higher socioeconomic schools. There is a very large achievement gap that teachers at my school try to close everyday. By using the best resources, putting in hard work, and creating a classroom full of love, I know my students can accomplish anything. My classroom is currently filled with hard work and an abundance of love-- all we need now are the best resources.

My Project

Since effective communication is an essential 21st century skill, I try to spend a large portion of the day on language concepts. I would like to have a dry erase board specifically for studying sentences, grammar, and language. My students and I will write sentences on the board and use magnetic props to label and discuss the language taking place in the sentences we choose.

Sixth graders at my school struggle with writing more than anything else.

Having an interactive whiteboard specifically dedicated towards improving language skills will engage my students and immensely improve both their writing and reading abilities.
