Ms. Garlow from Winston Salem NC is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Oh, The Places You'll Go!

My students need language arts supplies of whiteboards and markers, pocket sleeves, and headphones for use in our guided reading groups and centers.

My Students

My students attend a school in a low-income/high poverty school district. They come into my classroom eager to learn and happy to spend time with me and each other. Many times I hear my students say, "I just love school. It's my favorite." These kids face many challenges both in and out of school. I want to provide my students with as many high-quality learning experiences as possible. I want to be able to give my students meaningful learning and use creative and fun resources to enhance what we do on a daily basis.

I have 17 students in my classroom, many of whom come from bilingual households or single-parent households.

I teach at a Title I school in North Carolina where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of our students receive bags of food for the weekend and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Our school is a true melting pot of nationalities, cultures, experiences, and backgrounds.

My Project

If my project is fully funded my students will have their own materials to use individually and will allow them to be very "hands-on" during group time. This will help us practice our skills in a more time efficient manner.

Being able to "see it" and "do it" enhances the learning the experience and allows each student the opportunity to grow and learn using some fun creative resources.My students are just beginning to learn to spell words from the sounds they hear and we would love to use the dry erase lap boards to make this process more fun!

I can't wait to see the students draw number lines and use the whiteboards during addition and subtraction times as well.

The headphones will enable each child to use our chosen ELA website to work at their own pace, listen and follow along with books and exercises of their choosing, and do it without disturbing their neighbor. The students will essentially have their own listening stations to do the work that is differentiated just for them.

The protective plastic sleeves are for use during guided reading and center times. Using the sleeves saves on paper copies. In our school, we are limited to the number of copies we can make, so using these sleeves to do our work will help save time and paper. The students can write on the sleeves using the wipe off markers. I am excited for my students to begin using all of these fun new resources!
