Ms. Edmonds from Bronx NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Magnificent Motivating Materials

My students need 9 fantastic art supplies and materials to create their own books.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My middle school students are lacking in resources, but brimming with creative possibility. When they are given exciting materials and freedom to write and illustrate their own stories, they are capable of amazing things.

I teach English to sixth grade students in a high need urban area.

Most children receive free or reduced price lunch. My students often do not have funds for basic school supplies, and the school does not provide materials. Many of my students cannot read or write on grade level, and they can be difficult to motivate. I encourage art and creativity as a way to inspire all students.

My Project

I want your help in enriching my students' lives. I would like to give them beautiful pens, paper, markers, and fun materials to use in creating books of their own. They will write, illustrate, and publish stories. With the awesome supplies my students will create works of art they can read to their families and keep for years to come.

When students are given access to new, dazzling materials, they feel special and inspired.

This type of excitement will fuel them to work hard on an academic project and increase their reading and writing skills.
