Mrs. R. from Phoenix AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

May the Classroom's Supplies Be with You

My students need learning materials all around them that can be used year after year. Most of the materials are for my current class and future classes. Let's help them do their best!

My Students

I have just started at my new school, so I haven't met my students yet. From what I understand, the demographic has changed quite a bit through the years to one where teachers are no longer able to ask for a lot from families. Now teachers at the school are buying their own supplies and fully funding their own classrooms with the hopes that students will at least bring pencils, Kleenex, and hand sanitizer.

The students are academically high and respectful to teachers and staff.

I'm really excited to meet them!

My Project

I have moved up grade levels! Fourth grade here I come! The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a place. I know exactly where everything will go. The large carpet will be placed in the front of the classroom and used as a gathering place during mini-lessons and share time. The borders are going to make our class created bulletin boards more appealing to others.

The construction paper will be used by the students during educational and creative lessons.

The 3 ring binders are for loose curriculum I need to contain, so I don't lose it. The figurative language posters are for the different types of non-literal language.

The maps are for geography lessons. The alphabet will be placed on the wall to use all year while I teach cursive. There are also materials in the list to help with classroom management to keep learning at its maximum level all day long. Please help me make this year successful and enjoyable for my students.
