As the school year gets into full swing, so is my students' desire to learn. They are present daily with a passion to tackle whatever the day has in store. My class consists of a majority of English language learners, with home countries ranging from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, The Philippines, and Honduras. The zeal that they have for education is one that I want to cultivate and fuel.
Despite varying home life situations, my students come to school with an enthusiasm to learn.
My 28 fifth grade students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. They are a diverse group that embodies the melting pot that our community is well known for.
As the school year comes to an end, preparations for the next year are in full swing. With that comes the hustle and bustle of back to school shopping. Every student looks forward to the new supplies they will get to use on that first day of school. Unfortunately, there are many students that do not have the means to go out and purchase supplies. By providing them with some basic supplies such as folders, pencils, pens, markers, and pencil boxes, I hope to lessen the burden and create a greater sense of excitement to start the new year.
These materials will set students up for a successful school year, helping them maintain organization.
My students will all have the same supplies they need to accomplish their goals across all the different content areas.
