Ms. M. from Austin TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Writing Fun in Pre K!

Help me give my students the opportunity to have the supplies to take home daily in order to complete their homework that will help them practice their writing and phonics skills and keep a clean and healthy environment!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My school provides a full-day pre-K program for all children who are 4-years old and who meet one of the following eligibility criteria: Qualify for free or reduced-price lunch program; English language learners (ELL); Homeless; Child of an active-duty military member or a military member who was injured or killed in service; or Reside or have ever resided in foster care.

My students are energetic and eager to learn!

I want to give my students the opportunity to succeed at the best of their ability. I want their classroom experience to be one that they will never forget and that they will carry with them in later years.

My Project

My students will be able to take the pencil pouch home daily in their homework folder with a sharpened pencil, eraser, and other needed supplies as well as use them in the classroom for daily work.

This donation will ensure that my students are working on their phonics and pre writing skills everyday in order to set a good foundation for reading and writing to come.

Our alphabet center will be ready to go! The translucent alphabet will be used at the light up table, and the other 2 alphabet activities will be used at the Alphabet center. Students will be able to work on their letter recognition by matching letters that are uppercase and lowercase.

They are learning how to be responsible for their own supplies and have them ready to go when it's time to get to work.

Grades PreK-2
