Mrs. Holyk from Cleveland OH is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Showing Progress With Portfolios!

My students need binders to build portfolios to showcase what they have learned and to track the progress they have made. My students need notebooks and pencils to complete daily journal writing.

My Students

I teach 25-second grade students in a public urban PreK-8th grade school. Most of my students are from a low income/high poverty area, many coming from nontraditional families. Sometimes not having adequate supplies holds them back from reaching their full potential.

My students deserve the opportunity to be successful.

They are very hardworking and thoughtful. My students love working with hands-on activities and in centers. They love working together by teaching and helping each other when someone is struggling.

My Project

These binders will help my students to build learning portfolios to track their reading and math goals. Students will use their binders daily during guided reading, guided math, and centers. These notebooks and pencils will improve my students' daily journal writing. Students will be able to visually track their writing progress throughout the year with appropriate second-grade paper.

These materials with help support my students with the supplies they need to be successful.

The take-home folders will aid in daily communication between home and school. They will help my students as they learn effective organizational skills necessary for academic success.
