Ms. O'Daniel from Saint Paul MN is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Supplies for Social Studies

My students need access to portable, non breakable globes for mapping activities in geography class. They also need white board markers because there are never enough to support student learning. They also need art supplies.

My Students

I teach 8th grade Global Studies and 7th grade AVID. My students are inner city kids in St. Paul, Minnesota. Many of them first or second generation immigrants to this wonderful country. We are largely Hmong, Karen, Somali, Hispanic, and African American. We learn about the world at large as well as our local community in order find relevancy in Social Studies.

Our students are eager to learn, but they aren't always afforded the tools that they need to be successful due to district budget challenges.

But they are bright, and ready to take on the world if we can give them the push. They want to go to college. They want to thrive and change the world if they can. We train them to be leaders in the classroom, school, and community.

My Project

These supplies will allow my students to have materials that they need to participate in classroom activities. Students regularly cannot read what is on my white board because we go through a box of markers a week and even then, the writing from those dry erase markers is so light and hard to read for them because the markers are being used well past their visible lifespan.

Non-breakable (very important for Middle Schoolers), inflatable globes will give the students help in Geography as they navigate the earth for assignments.

They will get to use it to practice locating countries, bodies of water, and other important physical features of the earth, which they do regularly in geography class.
