My Students

The majority of my third-grade students come from low-income single parent homes. Unfortunately, many of the parents are uneducated and not able to help their children develop reading skills. On the first day of school, more than 90% of the students that entered my classroom were not reading at a third-grade level. These students are hard working and goal oriented, they just need reading materials that will help them to develop the reading skills they need in order to achieve their academic goals.

My students are part of a T.E.A.M.

because we believe that Together Everyone Achieves Mastery. At the end of the year, my third graders must pass an online state test in order to go to fourth grade. My students do not come to school with a love a literacy. I know that by incorporating different genres into our daily literacy lessons my students will reach their goals, and become third-grade readers.

My Project

My students will love these new art supplies to make learning hands-on and fun. Students can be creative and use their imagination during art projects. The wide selection of glitter glue and markers will help the students create projects that are unique and show their diverse perspectives on the topics. The markers can be used for learning projects and art projects.

Students love to add personal touches on class projects that show their creativity.

My class would use the brand new art supplies to help enjoy learning. It will enhance the everyday learning in third grade. With your donation, all children can put a smile on their faces and proudly say, "Look what I made!"
