Mrs. Charipar from Cedar Rapids IA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My students need poster board to complete various end of unit presentations.

My Students

I currently teach literacy to 162 students a day. They often work in collaborative groups to complete end of unit projects.

Our school is a middle school in the Midwest.

I have 162 seventh-grade students this year. They are eager to please, and enjoy working on projects in collaborative groups. I have done 2 six week units with the students, and at the end they have completed various projects to demonstrate their learning. I like to provide all the materials for students to complete the projects, because I know money can be an issue. I received funding for poster board before, but having so many more students this year than last, causes me to use materials faster than I have previously.

My Project

I envision students using the poster board while they are in collaborative groups, completing end of the unit projects that demonstrate the knowledge learned, during the unit. Previously, students worked together on collaborate newspapers, and because I provided all the materials, and walked them through the process of completing a quality project, they looked awesome.

The thing I am most proud of, during this last unit, happened when one of my special end students was so excited, and could not wait to take her project home to show her parent.

It was the first time she had ever completed something that looked that good. She was able to do this because of the generosity of previous donors. Please consider what potential learning could take place with the additional supply of poster boards. Thanks for your consideration.
