Mrs. Mize from Marissa IL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

POOR SCHOOL = Unhappy Kiddos!

My students need literacy center activities.

Kindergarten students learn to read without any materials??? It is just NOT POSSIBLE!

It is hard to teach Kindergarten Kiddos how to read, much less any of the basics with no supplies what-so-ever!

At the beginning of the year I was presented pencils and paper - THAT'S IT! No other supplies were purchased or even handed down when I stepped into my current Kindergarten position. My students are in dire need of literacy center activities, as they can't learn to read off paper and pencil alone. I thoroughly believe in my students. I KNOW they can do it, but without the needed supplies it may not be accomplished.

Please help make it possible for my students. These literacy activities are what they need to succeed. They need you!
