2nd Graders Need Some Supplies

Help me give my students dry eraser markers, pencils, erasers, chart paper, and scissors.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come from a low-income area and low socioeconomic backgrounds. One hundred percent qualify for free breakfast and lunch. We lack many everyday school supplies, and many of the parents cannot afford to buy their children pencils, folders, and other essential supplies for school.

Many of my students come from low-income households.

Eighty-five percent of the students are English Language Learners, so many do not receive much help at home due to language. The teachers at our school are mentors to the children. We want all our students to succeed. The school provides a caring and warm environment to learn.

My Project

My students get excited to receive the essential classroom materials to have for themselves. It makes them feel happy and want to do the required class work. Having ​materials such as pencils, dry erase markers, composition books, glue sticks, erasers, anchor charts, and scissors are materials necessary for learning. We need scissors to cut our our word work words and glue sticks to glue the words under the correct spelling pattern. The anchor charts are used for visual support. The composition books are needed for math class to write their notes in. Pencils and erasers are used every day. So they are much needed in the classroom to complete assignments. The dry eraser markers are used during math and phonics time. They have they own dry eraser board, so the markers are needed to use during this time. The binders will be used to hold reading materials for students to use during reading block.
