Mrs. Turnbull from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

The Writings on the Wall Are Good!

My students need ink for our color printer, butcher paper for drawings, white board paint to change our walls to white boards, and a green screen to take our ELA projects to the next level!

My Students

My students are energetic, determined, and amazing children. They love to move and to play. They enjoy school because they love learning in so many different ways. They are amazing because they show up to school with a smile on their faces no matter what their circumstances are at home! For many of my students, school is their safe haven.

As a teacher in a low-income urban area, my students face many challenges in and out of school.

Many of my students also speak another language at home but we use their bilingual capabilities to enhance their learning. They are determined to learn as much as they can so they can apply their education outside of school!

My Project

Butcher paper is great material to use for math projects that cover measurement and area. I would also love to allow each of my students to make a large scaled map (social studies and art). To tie the map project into other subjects the students would also create a story using that mapped area as their setting (ELA). We could even tie in science by having the students use one of the school's Sphero SPRK+ to code the robot to walk through the large map!

We don't have a lot of whiteboard space and our walls are brick so it makes it very difficult to hang additional boards on the walls.

If I receive the whiteboard paint, I would paint our cabinets. This would give my students a place to plan their maps and even do other pre-writing assignments in a unique and memorable way! The students could then use the green screen to record and video blog their process along the way.

We need to refill the ink to our color printer so we can continue to make colorful projects and still be able to show our parents our finished projects in color, instead of just black and white. Our whiteboard map project would be an amazing project to be able to show our parents in color!
