Mrs. Tracy from Baton Rouge LA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Maximizing Our Minutes

My students need some sensible storage options such as Chair Backpacks to store our Learning in Motion supplies.

My Students

Through reading and storytelling, my classes come alive! My students are learning to read, speak and understand spoken Spanish. They are focused on attaining a life skill and expanding their opportunities through language acquisition.

I teach to the Middles!

My students are a diverse group of young people who are caring, funny, active and curious. All of my students are in different parts of their journey of self-discovery. Their interests and passions change daily but their commitment to acquiring Spanish has not wavered.

My Project

My Middles love to move. Because movement is such a powerful learning tool, our lessons include a variety of opportunities for movement. Our classroom is a desk free classroom which allows plenty of room for activities such as: Reader's Theater, Gallery Walks, Interactive Stations, Brain Breaks and Quick Interviews. These Chair Backpacks will allow my students to quickly access their Learning in Motion materials so that precious instructional minutes are not wasted passing out and picking up materials. Some daily use items include clipboards, white marker boards, dry erase markers and erasers. They will also keep these items safely stored when not in use, keeping our floors clear so that we can avoid slips, trips, splits and falls while on the move.
