Mrs. Witten Mindermann from Orlando FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Off to a Great Start

My students need classrooms supplies to help my students learn in a classroom that is ready for them to begin their learning together. I have requested various learning materials including alphabet activities and tactile alphabet match-ups.

My Students

I have a phenomenal group of 18 kindergartners at a Title I school. I have eleven boys and seven girls. Fifteen of these students are English Language Learners. My students deserve the absolute BEST materials in the classroom in all areas of learning to help them grow. They are engaged, eager learners and look forward to coming to school and learning every single day. I want my students to be successful learners every single day. Allowing students to have plenty of resources in the classroom that help them learn is very important to me. Growing and thriving as learners is an amazing thing to witness!

My Project

I am requesting classrooms supplies to help my students learn in a classroom that is ready for them to begin their learning together. I have requested various learning materials, such as alphabet activities, Tactile Alphabet Match-Ups, Giant Magnetic Letters – Uppercase, I Can Build Simple Words activity, and Sentence Strips, to help my dual-language students begin their reading skills in kindergarten learning. Number activities Sequencing Numbers 1-20 will help their math skills. I am also asking for some snacks to help fuel their little bodies so they are ready for learning. The requested items will be used to also provide a clean and bright learning environment.
