Classroom Supplies for the New Bache-Martin Kindergarten Room!

The Description

 

With these funds I will purchase the classroom furniture, teacher tools, and everyday supplies necessary to provide Bache-Martin kindergarteners with a well-rounded learning environment! As a first year teacher, there are many items that I do not yet have, and unfortunately it often falls on teachers to pay for these items ourselves. Below is a comprehensive list of the items I plan to buy with any donations!

 

Lakeshore – Leveled Books Classroom Library 1, 2: $322.00

How I will use this item: I plan to buy just the book sets for reading levels A-F so that students can choose from a variety of books in a leveled classroom library. Students will be able to “bookshop” from the library and keep a set of books in their personal book boxes.

Amazon – White boards for students: $35.70, pack of 24 boards

How I will use this item: White boards that students can hold in their laps are great for practicing writing words and phonics, as well as math skills such as addition and subtraction.

Amazon – Learning Resource Snap Cubes (Two orders): $20.68

How I will use this item: Snap cubes are helpful manipulatives to use during math lessons, particularly as students are learning one-to-one correspondence and addition.

Amazon – Hand Pointers: $9.79

How I will use this item: The pointers will be used during Shared Reading, allowing both the reader and the audience to more easily track words.

https://www.amazon.com/Learning-Resources-Hand-Pointers-Set/dp/B0006PKZ1I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1466987971&sr=8-1&keywords=pointers+for+children

 

Amazon – Organization Center Pocket Chart: $26.42

How I will use this item: This pocket chart will help organize students’ “home” folders in which homework and announcements are sent to home.

https://www.amazon.com/Smethport-747-Organization-Center-Pocket/dp/B001JTQDGQ/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1466988276&sr=8-9&keywords=pocket+chart

 

Amazon – Scotch Laminator: $25.99

How I will use this item: Not surprisingly, paper items and photos can get destroyed pretty easily in a kindergarten classroom. This laminator will help me make photos and important documents sturdier.

https://www.amazon.com/Scotch-Thermal-Laminator-Laminating-TL901C-T/dp/B00ZI7MI96/ref=sr_1_2?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1466988489&sr=1-2&keywords=laminating+machine

 

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal I will purchase the listening center and the books for the classroom library, as I feel that these items will be used on a daily basis from the beginning of the year on. If we surpass my goal, I will spend the extra money on more organizational furniture and of course, more library books!

Fundraiser Updates (1)

Thank you and a quick update!!!

June 28, 2016

Hi everyone!

Wow. Needless to say I am overwhelmed with all of your generosity and support! Almost $800 in less than 24 hours. That has to be some kind of record! Not going to lie, I teared up more than a few times yesterday after multiple people I have "lost touch with" donated and we reconnected. I am so lucky to have such supportive people in my life!

After some consideration and advice from the Pledge Cents team (who have been so friendly and helpful), I have decided to increase my fundraising goal from $1,150 to $1,500. I will use the extra $350 to purchase big books for shared reading, more books for the classroom library, chart paper, and to cover shipping costs.

I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far, and encourage anyone who is considering donating to keep the ball rolling!

 

Best,

About the Creator

I am a second year teacher at Bache-Martin Elementary School in Philadelphia, and I could not be more excited to start my second year in kindergarten! After studying educational psychology and social work, I earned my MSEd. at UPenn. As a newish teacher, I am lacking many supplies, so I created this Pledge Cents to help get the ball rolling.
