Mrs. Aulbach from Montpelier IN is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tools to Success

My students need some of the basic supplies such as glue sticks, pencils, and markers, throughout the year in order to be a successful student. One of the most important items in my wish list is individual white boards which we use daily.

My Students

"When given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind." --from Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. This line is what drives my classroom of 17 wonderful students.

I have the privilege of teaching in a wonderful school in a wonderful community.

We sadly live in the poorest county in our state, but this doesn't stop us from doing all we can to see our kids are given everything they need to succeed.

The lesson of kindness is not only a beneficial lesson to learn as a child, but this will follow them their entire lives. My class is full of caring and loving children who need the reminder that they do have choices.

My Project

I teach at a rural, Title 1 school that strives for the absolute best of our students. In order to do this, many items are needed on a daily basis. Most students do come to school with the recommended supplies, but as the year progresses more is needed.

I believe in hands-on, active learning.

In order to do this, students need the tools to be able to get up and move all the while learning. I would love to be able to have a clipboard and whiteboard for each of my incoming 25 students. We do a lot of group and partner work, and these items would be used often.

All the items in my wishlist, including glue sticks, pencils, markers, etc., would be used often throughout the school year to help me as their teacher give my students a wonderful 4th grade experience.
