Various Classroom Items Needed

My students need basic, every day supplies such as paper, a three hole punch and a pencil sharpener for use in the classroom.

My Students

As a charter school, we receive much less funding per student than our public school counterparts. Therefore, even basic, every day supplies such as copy paper and pencil sharpeners can be hard to come by! I need these supplies to be able to create engaging learning activities for my students.

We are a charter K-12 system in southwest Florida.

I teach struggling middle school readers. Because reading is difficult for them, the majority of them don't enjoy it. Therefore, it's extra critical that I am able to create exciting lessons and projects to accompany our novels. In order to do that, though, I am in desperate of some basic classroom supplies.

My Project

The large, adhesive easel paper is great for group work and projects--and my students LOVE writing on it!! It's funny to see 7th and 8th graders get so excited every time it's a "giant paper day". Any project becomes way more fun when they get to write on the easel paper! My students also have to create graduation reading portfolios, which is why the 3 Hole Punch would really come in handy. Being a charter school, we are reliant on parent donations of even the most basic supplies, such as copy paper. Due to tough economic times, however, many families are having a hard time affording these "extra" school supplies--leaving us teachers with a significant paper shortage, even early on in the school year. Finally, I have already purchased a manual pencil sharpener with my own money--but it can't keep up with the demand of 150 daily students! We need something much more reliable--but good supplies don't come cheap!

I am doing everything I can to provide my students with the materials and supplies needed for their education--the materials that they deserve.

However, I can't do it alone--and their families just can't help very much right now, either, although I know that they wish they could. I'm hoping some generous soul out there will become a fairy godmother (or father) to our classroom!
