Ms. Ureña from Miami FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Ready to Learn!

Help me give my students the essentials to succeed! As a first year teacher I do not possess all the materials needed to help my students. With enough markers, pens, and paper my students will always be prepared.

My Students

Have you ever worked hard to complete a task that seemed to come easy to others? This is the feeling my students have on a daily basis. Everyday I see my students struggling to complete tasks that seem to come easy for typically developed children. My students all come from diverse backgrounds. Some of my students background are English learners as they come from different countries while others were raised here but have communication difficulties. They are all in a school with a self cointained classroom to help focus on their emotions and behaviors while simultaneously learning in different subjects.

Everyday I see my students work hard and improve on tasks that do not come easy to them.

They write positive notes to encourage themselves and their peers and they take deep breathes and short breaks to help manage their thoughts and emotions. Everyday I see improvement in my students and I love watching them come into class and feel as if they are home.

My students are hardworking, loving and determined. Their hard work pushes me to work hard for them.

My Project

These important materials are daily essentials used to help students understand lessons through a multitude of learning styles. Expo markers are not only used by the teacher but by the students themselves. This helps students engage with non-traditional writing tools, such as the pencil.

These supplies will be used throughout the year to display each child’s ability to learn.

Students will benefit from classroom furniture because it will provide small group instruction and with the use of the colorful paper, pens, markers, and anchor charts, learning can be done in differential ways. This ensures every child can understand the instructions, no matter their learning style.

With the use of anchor chart, I can display a lesson plan using a variety of colors and visuals. Students can come up and fill in blank to any statement and I can process whether the student understood the information. With the stack stools I can divide groups to provide small group instruction to the student who did not fully retain the information.
