Mrs. Sanchez from San Antonio TX is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Starting the Year Off Write

My students need mechanical pencils, lead, glue sticks, colored pencils, and protactors to start off their math class on point.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Do you remember coming to school with all the necessary supplies on the first day of school? Well some of my students come to school on the first day with no supplies.

I will be teaching 2- 3rd grade math classes this year.

All of my students are English Language Learners who are on a free lunch. They attend a Title 1 school which encourages them to try their best no matter the circumstances they live with on a daily basis.

My Project

I am requesting the mechanical pencils so that the students no longer have to wait around to sharpen a pencil. This will improve our instruction time, as they will not have to constantly get up to sharpen their pencil. The glue, colored pencils, and protactors will also improve instruction time because these will be available at their desk and they will not have to move around to find these materials.

Every student deserves to start off the school year with the necessary supplies they need to learn.

Being able to help provide these materials will give my students the boost they need to concentrate on math and do their best.
