TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need two new tables and a file cabinet with hanging file folders.
At the beginning of this school year, my students and I moved into a new classroom. The room is a much smaller space, without windows or a sink area like we used to have. After a long adjustment period, we finally have stopped wondering what the weather is outside and have embraced our insular classroom.
I teach a fifth grade classroom with 21 bright and eager young ladies and gentlemen.
The school is in an ethnically diverse, low-income neighborhood. I have made our space as homey as possible with my own supplies and items from home, but many of these items are recycled/reused gifts from decades gone by. I feel it is vital to have a teaching and learning space that is inviting and organized.
The organizational items and student gathering spots in our classroom are due for a refresh. Tables are extremely important as meeting areas for reading and math groups, science experiments, and for conferring with writers. The tables that we are currently using are difficult to move. The tops are peeling off, they are inappropriately sized for the number of students in each group, and they always look dirty. They are over 40 years old! We need some new tables.
Additionally, I am running out of storage space for student files.
For 15 years, I have used a file cabinet with drawers that do not pull out smoothly. Mr. T would have trouble with them. A new file cabinet would allow space for students to easily access their work and conference folders without the fear of pulling a drawer out and crushing their toes!
Your donation would help to transform our classroom space from a hodgepodge of salvaged items into the classroom my students deserve. Thank you for considering donating to this project!
