Ms. McKee from Pittsburgh PA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

The Dog Won't Eat Our Homework!

Help me give my students sturdy, colorful clipboards so they can be organized and do their best work!

My Project

Having a clipboard to hold the assignments in preschool would be extremely helpful. For some students, it is hard to hold the paper still while trying to manipulate a pencil or crayon. A clipboard would eliminate that frustration. For other students, it would be a way to keep their work together, and in good condition, rather than crunched into a backpack.

The students would love to have their own clipboard, just like their teacher.

It would help in developing organizational skills and may encourage our students to do their homework!
