Ms. McCann from Fort Pierce FL is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Starting the Year Off Write!

My students need writing journals. They also need basic supplies and classroom materials like glue sticks, play-doh, and sharpies.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.

My students need to know they are important and will be taken care of.

They crave positive attention in a safe, caring and structured environment. My students love activities that are fully engaging. They also love singing and dancing during brain breaks!

My Project

I feel that it is important to teach my students proper handwriting skills and encourage creative writing. Having a class set of these primary writing journals would be a perfect way to practice writing and allow my students a place to express their creativity through writing.

Unfortunately, many of my students will come to school this year with little or no school supplies.

It is important to me as their teacher to ensure that all students have all the supplies they need so that they can succeed. Some of the items I have ordered will aid me in providing them with the best possible classroom experience, including a clean and organized environment. I have also ordered some rewards that I can use as incentives for positive behavior and goal reaching.
