Ms. Short from Birmingham AL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Organized and Fun Writing

My students need these storage organizers, so that our computer are safely put away. Boogie boards would be a tremendous help with our small groups.

My Students

First of all, I really do have an amazing group of students and I could not be more proud to be their teacher. I currently teach at a title one school where there at 1,300 students in the whole school, with ten teachers per grade level, so to say the least we are a very large elementary school. With that begin said, I want my students to be able to receive the best education with the best tools offered to them.

My Project

The organizer bins would be a great help to safely store our computers. Currently our classroom's computers are stacked against the wall on shelf and the charging cords are everywhere. This would help to stack our computers away nicely and to keep them from getting damaged.

The boogie board writers would be a tremendous help in our small groups.

I do not have any white boards in my classroom, so we are always using pencil and papers and that is not engaging for the students to use. This would make learning fun in a different way. Thank you for you help!
