New Classroom Needs Supplies

My students need classroom supplies, including pencils, markers, tape, glue and notebooks, to start the school year in a newly formed classroom.

My Students

"Involve me and I can learn". I am creating a new special day class at a Middle School. The classroom is virtually 4 walls, 3 white boards, desks, and chairs. I am bringing as many supplies as I have collected and bought, but for my students to show what they are learning, we need more supplies.

My students are 6th, 7th, and 8th graders (middle school) who have learning disabilities, language disabilities, and autism.

I believe that all students no matter their challenges can learn and should be given the opportunity to learn. I would like them to have the same learning opportunities as all students in our district. My students need physical tools to show what they know.

My Project

Can you imagine wanting to write a shopping list or a letter to a friend or a memo to a colleague and not have a pencil to write with or paper to write on? Can you imagine putting together a collage, project, or a presentation without glue, tape, paint, or markers? Imagine being provided a white board at work without dry erase pens. My students will be coming to school ready to learn, ready to show what they know, ready to share knowledge with each other. We need school supplies in order to express our learning. We will be exploring writing daily, mathematics, and reading comprehension. We will be learning to become independent learners during group activities.

Teachers are given a small budget that does not go very far.

We ask for donations of supplies from parents, but many cannot afford to donate. Every year I donate a large amount of money to my classroom to keep my classroom supplied with necessary tools. When a teacher sets up a new classroom it takes extra supplies to get everything rolling. There are no left overs from the year before. I would be so very much appreciative of any help I receive for my students and their classroom.
