Mrs. Hamilton from Elwood IN is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My students need various art supplies and other important classroom basics.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My sweet future Kinders are at the age where every moment can be a learning experience. Students who are surrounded by books, manipulatives, and an inviting learning environment thrive and grow! Playing games, singing songs, reading stories, and creating with their hands are what will make them love to learn. These young children still need to have playful and fun experiences while learning at the same time. They are learning those vital skills that they will use for the rest of their lives!

My Project

Our classroom is getting close to being functional for the school year! This project includes materials like pipe cleaners, paint, brushes, and paint cups. Little minds need many outlets to express creativity and these materials will help them do that!

Another item in this project is an electric pencil sharpener for myself and the students!

We will be doing a lot of sharpening and classrooms no longer include sharpeners on the wall. File folders with fasteners will aid me to keep students' work and assessments organized as well as hanging file folders for the filing cabinet. We hope with these materials our rooms will function perfectly.
