Ms. Curry from Seattle WA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Miss Curry's 2nd Grade

My students need an easel/chart stand for lessons so that I can teach them using visual strategies. My students also need book bins to store the books they choose each week from our classroom library.

My Students

I have 20 wonderful students to start my first year of teaching, and I am so excited to learn alongside them this year. My 2nd grade students come from a variety of backgrounds and speak several different home languages including Somali, Spanish, and Vietnamese. As a school, around 75% of students qualify for free and reduced priced meals.

As a whole, the 2nd graders at my school made amazing growth in literacy and math last year, and I am so excited to continue to help them grow this year.

My Project

As a first year teacher, I am looking forward to providing my students with an engaging and loving classroom environment. Doing this means that I need a variety of supplies including an easel to teach from, book bins, and culturally relevant and responsive books. These supplies will help to get our school year off to a positive and engaging start.

By donating to my project, you will be helping my students get off to a great start in our classroom by making sure that they have some of the items that make a classroom feel like a home.

Thank you for helping!
