Mrs. H. from Saginaw MI is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We're So COOL

My students need fans to help keep them cool in the classroom as well as a place to store their headphones.

My Students

The kids in my room are absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately many of them do not come from a very good home life.

Many of my students often go without, so when they come to school I want them to feel special and at home.

My ultimate goal is to create a safe and fun learning environment for them.

My students work harder than most to be successful. When they are with me at school I want them to know that they are cared for and loved. They mean the world to me, and I make sure they know that each and every day.

My Project

Imagine 30 kids in a small classroom on a hot day... now imagine those same kids in a small classroom, on a hot day, in a school with no air conditioning. There are many days throughout the school year where our classroom gets very hot. The heat makes it hard for the students to learn. These three fans will make a tremendous difference in helping to cool our classroom. The fans will turn their focus from the heat back to learning. The pocket chart will be helpful in organizing our room in a more efficient way. Right now, the headphones get shoved in the cupboard, and are often tangled together. This chart will allow each child to have a place for their headphones.
