Ms. Nelson from El Cajon CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Writing in Science!

My students need materials for recording their scientific findings. They need notebooks for recording their observations. Sticky notes to mark their findings in non-fiction text. Lastly, they need chart paper to copy science anchor charts.

My Students

My school provides a quality education in a loving learning environment within a safe and organized atmosphere. Students look forward to coming to school and crave the schedule, routine and culture we have created together. Our classroom culture allows students to form and support an environment in which all students feel accepted, supported, valued and an important part of the classroom.

My students come from a community that is internationally and socio-economically diverse.

Many students experience peers of different ethnicities and perspectives, which provides countless enriching experiences. As the area is diverse it is also a low socio-economic area where breakfast and lunch are provided daily for every student. The majority of my students are English Language Learners and English is not their first language nor spoken at home.

With a growth mindset and given the correct tools, students are able to reach their goals through their partnerships with peers, teachers, parents, and community members.

My Project

With these materials, my students will be able to have supplies of their own. A notebook they can use for data, information, and observations that will not fall apart. Chart paper that will help students remember key points of the lesson. And sticky notes that will help students markup nonfiction text and their own notebook. These materials will allow students to feel as real scientists do.

Many of my students come from poverty and the items they own are gold, giving them these resources will boost their motivation!

With your help, my students will have resources to help boost their writing in science.
