Mrs. Capshaw from Fort Worth TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Ideal Classroom

My students need storage and flexible seating options. By having different options, the students are able to be in charge of their learning environment.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things.

Many students in my classroom come in saying they have difficulty completing practice assignments at home because of lack of supplies and resources.

Our school is in a community where a majority of the students are from low-income families or single-parent families. The students face many challenges outside of school.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

In my classroom, I always try to provide my students with options. By having different options for flexible seating, my students are able to have a say in their learning environment. I believe that when students are comfortable in the classroom, they are more likely to take pride in their learning and be more engaged.

We are in need of basic classroom items such as pencil sharpeners, pencil holders, and storage containers for our math, science and reading interactive notebooks.

Each student will have their own pencil pouch to help them learn to be responsible with their materials such as pencils, highlighters, etc.
