My Students

Our students are living in one of the lowest socioeconomic areas of our district. With a 97% economic disadvantage, students don't have easy access to items.

Our class needs electric pencil sharpeners, pencils, composition books for math and reading and writing, colorful pens for grammar and writing, and small dice which will be used for math.

Students will be using these supplies for their everyday work in math, reading, grammar, and writing.

We would greatly appreciate any donations that are given.

My Project

All of the supplies will be used during math, reading, grammar, and writing.

The electric pencil sharpener will be used to sharpen students' pencils quickly and efficiently.

Pencils will be used during math time and test taking.

The composition books will be used for all subjects. Students always need composition books to take notes and journal in their reflections.

Colored pens will be used in their composition books/journals. This will make note taking more fun to students. Giving them joy while writing is what will make my students want to learn more and put and effort into their learning.

The small dice will be used during math.
