Ms. Temple from Montgomery PA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Pockets for Practice

Help me give my students dry erase plastic sleeves that allow me to tailor their practice to all the different curriculums we cover. I'll be able to add pages of our handwriting lines and many math backgrounds!

My Students

I teach first grade in a small, rural, Title I school in central Pennsylvania. My first graders always come to me as busy, engaged, curious little sponges. They're so eager to learn how to read, spell, work with math manipulatives, and use science tools to discover the world around them. They love technology to help differentiate instruction to their individual needs and make my lessons come to life. They always ask to see pictures or videos of historical events, places around the world, and animals or storms we're studying in science to help make connections to further build their understanding.

They love hands-on manipulatives and toys they can use to explore, build, and be creative.

My Project

Our dry erase boards are seeing the wear and tear of our regular use and are just plain white. With these sleeves, I can add different practice pages for all of our different learning series: Fundations handwriting lines, Elokin boxes, Wonders Reading charts, Everyday Math diagrams, tens frames, number grids...and so many more I haven't even thought of yet!

I'm so excited I discovered these pockets!

Because we'll be using these pockets so much, we'll also need some more dry erase markers to make it through the rest of the year. These ones even have eraser caps that we can save and add to the new ones when our old ones dry up!
