Mrs. Reid from Omaha NE is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Miss! I Can't Find My Homework!!

My students need a set of individual classroom binders to help us stay organized!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are 7th graders at a neighborhood middle school. The school serves grades 6-8 with approximately 1100 students. Ninety percent of students qualify for free and reduced lunch.

Since my students are in 7th grade, many of them lack basic organizational skills.

Also, many of my students cannot afford to bring basic supplies to class like paper, notebooks, and folders. If those things do get brought to class, they are often lost, stolen, or damaged as they travel to and from class.

My Project

My students will be able to use these binders as in-class interactive notebooks and folders. The binders will help them stay organized and not loose notes, assignments, or examples by keeping them in order and divided by sections. The binders are much sturdier than notebooks, so they can survive many years of students and can be refilled when they are empty, instead of being thrown in the trash. Binders are a practical, easy, and will hold up much longer than a typical spiral notebook.

These binders will help my students take a step toward being more organized.

The binders will be divided into sections, making it easy for students to find bell work, homework, or exit slips. They will help me easily access student work to check or grade and will be reused year after year. My students who struggle financially will be able to feel confident knowing their supplies are provided for them and won't have to feel different or left out.
