Ms. Herrick from Kansas City KS is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Writer's Workshop

My students need clipboards, highlighters, and other supplies for our writer's workshop. The students will be busy all year with a variety of writing projects and clipboards and highlighters will help them along this wiring journey.

My Students

Teaching is so much FUN! My students come from many different backgrounds with a wide variety of challenges. We are a very diverse district and currently I have 3 different home languages that my students speak.

My students attend a public elementary school in Kansas City, Kansas where 100% of our students receive free and reduced meals.

Third grade is a big year! Students will learn to work more independently with writing, reading and math! They are very excited and anxious to learn! We focus on a wide variety of areas ranging from social, emotional, along with academics.

My Project

Third graders are sharpening their addition and subtraction skills and then will move to multiplication. The flashcards and games will be a great addition to our math block for extra practice and review when needed. They are also perfect for those inside recess times.

We also have writer's workshop where students are producing their own writing.

Clipboards and highlighters will be very helpful for this wiring experience. The kids love to move around the classroom and write in different spots, so the clipboards give them that opportunity and still allow them to write. Highlighters will help with the editing part of the workshop.
