My Students

My class consists of 24 eager students that enjoy learning. We are located in Nebraska and are proud to be part of the public schools. We are a suburban school that does not receive funding from other programs like Title I, making our school budget tight.

Despite being in a suburban school, my students come from a variety of backgrounds.

There are students with family serving in the military, students who are English Language Learners, students with special needs and many more. We are a diverse group of learners.

My Project

My class consists of creative writers, but we are running short on some essential supplies for Writer's Workshop that may keep us from creating new poems. With an upcoming poetry unit in the works, we need paper, pencils, a stapler, 3 hole-puncher, crayons, ink and labels to get us started. We will then celebrate the end of our unit with Poetry and Punch. Poetry and Punch is a celebration in which we invite our families in to our classroom to share our poems. In order to have our celebration, we need cups and punch for our guests.

My students will use the paper, pencils and crayons during our Writer's Workshop to write poems.

We will use the labels, ink, stapler and 3 hole-puncher to organize our materials. These essential materials are needed in order to write and create our poems. The cups and punch will be for our Poetry and Punch celebration at the conclusion of our unit.

Receiving these basic supplies will allow us to have the materials we need in order to write poems. It will also allow us the have our Poetry and Punch end of the unit author's celebration with our families.
