Ms. C. from Mattapan MA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Paper Please!

My students need paper so that I can copy mini-books, the stories they write, lessons, and chart paper to easily access the mini-lessons we have!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Waiting for paper so we, too, can be SUPER! I have access to great curricular materials; however, I do not have to the paper to make use of it. My ELL students are thrilled to be learning English. Our text book comes with mini books I could copy and send home with the students.

Our classroom is in a very diverse school, ethnically and learning styles - wise.

Our class is full of English Language Learners who are excited to read and write in English! The school is high poverty, and materials are limited. 90 percent of the students in my 5th grade class are recent arrivals from Haiti!

My Project

My students need hands-out papers, workbooks and books they can write on. In addition, we need to save the mini-lessons we have and post them around the room so students can recall them. (As opposed to using a white board, and erasing the remnants of lessons.) The word strips are for all the new terms we will be learning. We post those on the WORD WALL. It sounds silly, perhaps, to be asking for paper, but this will go to great use!

The basics aren't too exciting, perhaps.... But paper will allow us to do so many activities that will enhance our skills while allowing us access to meaningful learning!

Students will be able to have mini-books, which are made to be copied so students can take them home and write on them. Students will be able to share copies of their work with others so peer-editing can help us to develop as writers. The chart paper is a basic necessity as well; however it facilitates learning.
