Ms. Teacher Kari from Portland OR is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Student Supplies for Success

Help me give my students the basic school supplies they need to participate in school activities while learning from home, like: crayons, markers, glue, scissors, fine motor tools, and math manipulatives.

My Students

My Kindergarteners are a group of 5 and 6 year olds that are starting school from their own homes instead of our classroom. They are just as eager to learn, explore, play, question, and meet new people as any group of incoming Kinders.

At my school there are dozens of cultures celebrated and languages spoken.

We learn about each other and everyone becomes both student and teacher. Meeting each other will be extra challenging this year as we have to get to know one another through our screens, but it will happen. I can't wait to see all their shining faces!

My Project

Typically school supplies are donated to the classroom each year by families that are able to support the classroom in a financial manner. All the donated supplies, and other financial donations, are then shared equally with the class so that all students have equal access. During our Distant Learning, due to COVID, I want to make sure that all my students have what they need to follow along and participate with the whole class.

In Kindergarten there is a focus on developing fine motor skills so we do activities that require pinching, squeezing, cutting, gluing, and writing.

The majority of these supplies are to facilitate these activities at home, along with ways to store their supplies so they are available everyday for "school" at home.

If we are able to return to the classroom later this year, students will bring their items to school and be able to have individual tools that won't need to be touched by others- further helping stop the spread of germs/viruses.
