Mrs. Palmer from Maricopa AZ is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Basics

My students need paints, journals glue sticks and more basic materials to create art, write, and learn the basics before going to first grade.

This project expired on May 24, 2011.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students really like painting and not having the supplies needed really disappoints the students.

My students are very caring and get along well.

They love to talk and play while producing art. My students really work hard toward showing great character and continue to model this to other students. My students come from different family homes where some students are the only child other students have many siblings.

My Project

I would love to have the paint needed, writing paper, and materials needed to produce certain activities throughout the months in school. Many students do not know how to work with painting materials along with having the lined writing paper will assist with the students penmanship.

This would make a difference with the entire class.

And the students will be better prepared for first grade from working on their penmanship and writing skills. First grade students write a lot and I want to prepare my students the best that I can.
