Mrs. Mathews from Louisville KY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Successful Sixth Graders

Help me give my students the opportunity to have a successful transition from elementary school to middle school. The materials I chose were things like dry erase markers and mathematic manipulatives.

My Students

My incredible 6th grade students are deserving of an inclusive and warm classroom environment in which they are all given an equal opportunity to thrive and be successful. My students are intelligent, kind, and resilient and deserve to have the materials needed to have a successful year.

My students are creative, spontaneous, and love to challenge themselves.

I teach students from all different ethnic backgrounds and I strive to create an inclusive caring environment for them each and everyday. These supplies will provide my students the opportunity to strive for success and achieve their dreams.

My Project

These materials will help provide all of my students the opportunity to have a successful transition from elementary to middle school. My students are predominately low income students that do not always get the same opportunities as others to be successful. I teach ESL students along with students that speak only english as a language.

I strive to create an inclusive positive environment for each and every one of my students.

My students will use these materials to help grow and deepen their mathematical understandings. We will be using these materials on a daily basis. I am very excited to give each and everyone of my kids the best 6th grade year that they could have.
