Mrs. Norman from Yakima WA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Small Group Needs Clipboards

My students need 30 clipboards to use while at the carpet during small group reading time. We also need a crate to store them in.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students keep poking holes in their papers because they don't have a hard surface to write on while sitting at the carpet! We need a class set of clipboards!

My students are a group of 26 bright-eyed, eager learners.

The majority of my classroom are bilingual, migrant students living in a high poverty environment. They come from homes where they don't have much. Many come to school fully prepared with all of their supplies, but the majority do not. But when they enter the classroom, they give everything they have. I try to make the classroom an inviting place where students want to come and learn. Many of my students come from broken homes where drugs and gang violence are a common sight in their young lives. School is a safe place and they thrive within the four classroom walls. These students will be the change makers in their families because of the education they are receiving.

My Project

My students receive their reading instruction in a small group format. When they come to the carpet, they have to juggle their anthology book while attempting to write on their practice book pages. Having clipboards will provide my students a secure place to write while allowing them to reference their anthology books when they use one of our reading strategies, "touch and copy." Students will also be able to use their clipboards during Math Workshop as well. During Math Workshop, students are allowed to find a place to work in the room. Most end up back at a desk because they need a hard surface to write on.

I want to give my students every opportunity.

In the last 3 years, my school has gone from one of the lowest performing in the state to one of the top performing. The students haven't changed, they way we teach them has and they now know they can learn. They want to learn. In the small groups, the clip boards will make their lives a little easier. An added bonus is their papers will have fewer holes too!
