Mrs. Bear from Alfred ME is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

Our school is filled with children who love learning. Our K-5 students have technology to learn and assist with practicing skills. Their iPads also help them demonstrate their knowledge in a project-oriented way.

These are students who come to school each day, working hard to strengthen their knowledge in a strong community of learners.

They love learning, they run, laugh, play and are kind. They are All-American kids who are striving to be their best! They appreciate every effort given for them to be their very best.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students would be helpful in my classroom. The pencil and crayon sharpeners will keep up the students' pace as they work. The laminator and bins will allow me to prepare learning materials for the children that can be used over and over again.

Donations to this project will help to improve my students' quality of learning.

Time for Kids sends weekly publications for each of my children to use that enhance their understanding of non-fiction text. The topics are always interesting to the students, quite often focusing on current events.
