Ms. Hicks from Bronx NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

No Time Wasted!

My students need pencils, erasers, colored pencils, student planners, and tape recorders.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Our third-grade class is so hard-working and enthusiastic that they go through supplies like pencils very quickly! We are in constant need of pencils, erasers, and colored pencils. All of our students receive free lunch and some of them are in temporary housing, so they are in need of more resources than their more privileged peers. This doesn't stop them from wanting to learn - our class is very motivated and curious. But we have a long way to go! With your help, our students can spend class time benefiting from the resources all students should have. We also need student planners to help our class organize papers, homework, calendars, and parent letters. Having these planners will help our students stay organized and on task, and we will be able to teach them about responsibility. We want to focus our attention on multiplication and poetry instead of sharpening pencils and losing homework sheets! We also need tape recorders to record books for our students. These recordings will strengthen our students’ reading fluency and make reading centers fun! Next year, we will use the tape recorders to show our incoming students their progress in reading throughout the year. The tape recorders will benefit many students now and in the future. You can make it possible for our students to have all the resources they need to excel every day.
