Mrs. Koert from Fairhope AL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Not Just a Classroom, but a Home!

Help me give my students supplies for our classroom, incentives for great behavior, and ways to make our classroom feel like a home!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I always like to tell my students that in our classroom they are part of a family. We all bring different things to the table. Some of us are more quiet, where others are loud and outgoing. Some students love sports and learning history and war, where others love math, or science, or reading science fiction novels. All of our interests are different, but we still find common ground and have similarities. We are all able to contribute to make our classroom the best learning environment it can be!

My Project

There are a variety of items that we are requesting that will help to make our classroom run smoothly, and will help give students motivation to do their best in school! Some of the classroom supplies that will be used daily include staplers, pencils, and paper.

I love to make the classroom feel like home.

The poster, curtain rods and Christmas lights will help to give our room a warm and inviting feel.

The candy bars and card games will be used as incentives for our students! Students can earn these by exhibiting leadership skills, showing a hard work ethic, and having a great attitude!
