Ms. Maller from Bronx NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our Kindergarten Classroom Needs Basic Supplies!

My students need pens, dry erase markers, paper towels, headphones, and other essential supplies for our classroom.

My Students

Imagine hearing a child say, "Can I take an apple home? We don't have a lot of food in my house."

My students are growing up in an unsafe, extremely economically disadvantaged neighborhood.

As Kindergartners, this is the foundation of their experience in school. My students are learning to love school through our exciting hands-on, experience-based classroom. Unfortunately, my school is lacking tremendously in resources and funding, and we were provided with hardly any materials.

My students need the proper materials, resources, and furniture to succeed in school!

My Project

My students need basic supplies to ensure that we have a successful second half of the school year! They need pens for writing, dry erase markers for math and phonics, and headphones to help them hear and concentrate when working on an individual lesson on the computer. If my students have access to paper towels, they can take ownership of a minor spill by cleaning it up themselves. My students need snacks to nourish their bodies and cups to stay hydrated!

I believe that all students deserve access to these basic supplies, and without DonorsChoose our classroom simply would not have them.

This project will help our classroom tremendously by allowing my students to continue our school year with the basic supplies that our classroom needs to function.
