Mr. Nicholas from Philadelphia PA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Bright Students + Your Support = Effective Math

My students need mobile whiteboards and ink for new ways to collaborate and share their learning with the teacher and class.

My Students

I am a 7th and 8th Grade Math Teacher in a Philadelphia public school. Teaching groups as large as 35 students comes with its own challenges. I struggle to have enough supplies for the whole classroom to gain the full experience of learning the complex subject of Mathematics. Additionally, without the use of whiteboards, it is time-consuming to ensure that all students are on task and mastering content.

My students are extremely hard workers, who have the itch to learn and extend their knowledge.

They deserve the world and I want to give them the best chance to succeed.

My Project

Having mobile dry erase boards will allow my students to be able to collaborate on math projects and work out problems with their peers. These boards will be able to also help students demonstrate their work to the class, giving them a sense of pride and accomplishment and allowing me to more efficiently assess their knowledge.

Having student thinking on display at all times is what helps students learn the best.

Seeing other ideas to build on your own helps the students own their learning. This will lead to many student led discussions and let me act as a facilitator to their thought processes.

We also need ink to be able to print projects and models in color.
