Mrs. Willett from Austin TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Summer Boost!

Help me give my students materials like journals, whiteboards/markers, scissors, glue, and pencils so they can continue their learning journey, be creative and stay motivated during school closures and into the summer!

My Students

Our district decided to close campuses the day before our last day before Spering Break. Students and teachers left lunch boxes, jackets, supply boxes at our classrooms and desks without a chance to pack anything.

We have continued to stay in touch through texts, video conferences, phone calls and educational platforms.

I have been remotely assigning activities and checking in on work daily, trying to keep all my students engaged, safe and motivated to learn.

My Project

During our current situation with school closed for an indefinite time, teachers like me are worried about students' basic needs, safety, and continuing learning. I have been doing my best to provide for our scholars as best as I can, and they have stepped into this new normal in an amazing way. Unfortunately, many times they want to complete projects, write in a journal and make crafts but lack the needed materials to do so. My third graders will be going into their 5th week of remote learning next week and soon will be officially on summer break.

We all fear the summer "slide", but I think that with this momentum of remote learning, plus the materials needed, we can turn this time into a summer "boost"!

By providing families with supplies, they will be able to participate in remote learning, but also create their own learning- writing down ideas, painting, designing with crafts, and more.
