Ms. Burns from Watsonville CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Basics of Kinder

My students need basic classroom supplies such as paper, pencil grips, and pens in order to continue learning and growing this year!

My Students

The students at my school are eager to learn and grow and work collaboratively to build a community.

My students attend a high poverty school in which all of the students qualify for free lunch.

My students are eager learners despite some of the difficult challenges they face on a daily basis. Most of my students are fascinated by the world of science and love to explore and watch as things grow, change, adapt, and evolve.

One of our students' favorite parts of the day is our Morning Meeting time where we spend time together building community and learning how to get along, work together, and become family at school.

My Project

My students need white construction paper, cardstock paper, pens, pencils, glue sticks, and Kindergarten diplomas to get us started with the basic supplies we need for the year.

Most students in our class do not have access to the basic supplies necessary for school, so providing these basic necessities will ensure that all students have access to learning at school.

These supplies will be used to practice writing, math, science, and reading. We will also use these supplies to create beautiful art projects based on our science and social studies themes. These students will be so excited to use their new materials once this project comes to life.
