Mrs. McCaskey's Classroom Supplies - Donor's Choose Project

By Mrs. McCaskey via

“What are we here to do??? LEARN!” My students chant this everyday at dismissal. We know that each day we come to school, we are here for one reason: to learn. Please help us become better learners by contributing to our classroom! We appreciate your help!

My class is 23 wonderful and excited first graders! We are located on the west side of Chicago. We are all becoming the best readers and learners we can be! Some of my students are reading on a 3rd grade level, many are reading on 1st grade level and a few are struggling readers who need strong interventions to catch up to grade level. Please help us become the best we can be by contributing to our classroom!

My Project: Although we have had many generous contributions this year, we are running low on supplies and important resources to enhance our learning! Please help us out in our classroom by making a donation. Our basic supplies help us with everyday activities, such as cutting, gluing, drawing, writing, and reading. Some of the books and other reading resources help us with becoming more fluent and proficient readers. Please help the class become the best learner they can be! Thank you so much for your help!

These wonderful requests I have posted to be donated are great resources for my first grade classroom. Please remember what it was like when you were a kid learning to read, write, draw, think and always try your best. I try to make my classroom a fun, yet structured and successful learning environment. Please help my 23 wonderful first graders to be successful!
