Ms. Saepharn from Stockton CA is requesting books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Welcome to the World!

My students need more exposure to the world beyond their community. We need books, map, carpet and more.

My Students

My students are very special and are in need of some basic school materials that would help foster the learning environment of our class. We are a Title 1 school and most of my students are from families that struggle with having their basic needs met. I want to provide them with a warm and welcoming environment where they can feel comfortable and enjoy everyday.

Many of my students have not had the opportunity to experience much outside of their community.

I appreciate all the help we can get! Thank you!

My Project

These materials will help my students learn more about the world. Many lack adequate knowledge of the world outside of their neighborhood. I want them to discover how much more there is in the world with the help of these materials. They would get to see the Earth as a spherical planet with the use of the globe. They would get to see the states that make our country. They would become more familiar with knowing and understanding the difference between countries and states. They would be able to learn more about important historical figures that helped form our country with the literature.
