Mrs. Harper from Macomb MI is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New Tools for New Standards!

Help me give my students an easel and some easel paper to fulfill the new NGSS science standards. We will be able to easily see the scientific principles as they stand out in the classroom.

My Students

My students are an amazing group of 6th graders. Each year, my goal is to meet the needs of all 150 diverse learners in my classroom. My students come from a wide range of social and economic households, and I have several students who speak multiple languages. As they leave elementary and enter the middle school, setting it is an exciting time for them as they are growing in all aspect of their lives.

Although the students are diverse, they are all 11-12 years old that have the same needs: to be able to learn, grow and flourish in my science classroom and become productive members of society in the future.

My Project

With these new materials the students will be ready for the 21st century as the new NGSS standards are fully implemented in my classroom.

The large easel and sticky paper will allow for student driven instruction as they make important discoveries in science.

All of the scientific principles that students recognize throughout the year will be recorded on this paper and displayed on the easel in the classroom.

The magnets will be utilized to display student work and drive them to work harder throughout the year. Powerful magnets will help to keep the work displayed, instead of falling on the floor as students walk by in the hallways.

I can't wait to utilize all these new materials.
