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

Paper, Please!

Help me give my students paper! Although we are in the era of google classroom, my students prefer to take handwritten notes, in addition, lab packets require a tremendous amount of paper.

My Students

My students are energetic and eager to learn. They always come to class equipped with questions to further classroom discussion and a positive attitude. The students in my class thoroughly enjoy hands-on activities, and currently, their favorite science term is "pathogens".

Unfortunately, they have not been dealt the best hand, and most come from economically disadvantaged homes.

However, I believe paper can help make a difference in their education, regardless of where they are from. Help my students, please!

My Project

The paper will be used to create lab packets for students. To maximize student learning, the paper will also be used to create daily handouts where students can take notes. As previously mentioned, that is their preferred form of note-taking. The paper will also be used to print for students who need differentiation, and to print additional copies for ELL's in their language.

Access to paper will help increase student learning and productivity.

Having a physical copy of handwritten notes has been proven to help students remember the information. Please help me, help my students. Thank you, kindly!
