Mrs. Tuma from Lehigh Acres FL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Make It Last Forever

My students need laminating pouches, scissors, paper and other materials to make learning fun. I am asking for supplies that will help me to create durable centers. We need laminating pouches, paper, and a trimmer to do this.

My Students

A day in our room starts with eating breakfast together and ends with group discussion and hugs. My goal for the end of the year is to see at least one year's growth in subject areas. I am so excited to meet my new batch of students in a week. Our motto is "Work hard, be kind".

I work at a Title I school.

The families are high poverty. The students here are amazing. They come excited for learning and full of energy. They spend most of their day here and eat most of their meals with us as well. As a staff we do our best to make this a welcoming place for each student and their families.

My Project

I have access to amazing resources that help me to create incredible centers. However, in order to make them last for a few years, I need to laminate them. These lamination pouches are extremely durable. I also like to print on card-stock because it adds to the durability. The white card-stock helps the colored ink pop. Finally I am asking for a paper trimmer to help me cut all of the different pieces and keep them nice and neat, as well as help out with different projects throughout the year. These items will be put to great use in our classroom.
