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

Thrive: Socially, Emotionally, Academically

My students need basic supplies and Math equivalency puzzles to support academic development, and games and books to support social and emotional development.

My Students

Please join me in serving my young scholars in meeting their social, emotional, and academic needs. My students are a warm, fun, and energetic bunch who are enthusiastic learners. They are particularly fond of reading different genres and learning about the world in which they live.

There is a large percentage of students in foster homes at our school site.

Many live in unstable environments and have experienced trauma at some point in their lives. Therefore, the goal is to continue to support them emotionally and academically by instilling in them that no matter their circumstances, they have the power to shape their future.

My Project

Our goal is to expand our classroom library to continue to promote literacy and support their love for reading! We would need to add books to our collection that focus on multiculturalism and character development.

Furthermore, we would like to expand on our brain break activities to continue to build a positive classroom community and promote social and cognitive development.

Board games that are needed to promote social/emotional learning include "Silly Street", "Blurt", "Social Skills Boxed Set", and "Guess Who". For intervention purposes I have requested Lakeshore "Place Value" and "Equivalent Fractions" puzzle games.

Finally, as the school year progresses we tend to run low on classroom supplies including dry erase markers and erasers ( for individual white boards). We will use whiteboards particularly in Math as it will serve the purpose of informally assessing student learning. College-ruled 1-subject notebooks will be used for note-taking and writing.

Thank you for your generosity and your support! We greatly appreciate it.
