My Students

My students are awesome. They deserve all the resources to help them achieve success. My students attend a Title I school that is considered high poverty. We have almost 50% of our students receiving free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch each day. We even have a weekend food program.

My students are working extremely hard to be successful with the Common Core curriculum, and I want to get them all the resources to achieve this.

I appreciate how hard they work for me each day, and I know they'd appreciate any support you could give them.

My Project

Yep! That's where we're at. My students want a bunch of the Owl Diary books and a boxed set of Phoebe and her Unicorn. You may be saying..."Those are books for the girls in my class." Nope. The entire class, including the boys, want these books to read. They are enjoying the stories, and they can't get enough of them. They read them when they're done with their work, and they read them during our language arts block. Please help me get more Owl Diary books and a boxed set of Phoebe and her Unicorn into my room. I know they'd greatly appreciate the addition of more copies of these favorite books. Thanks for considering helping my students by bringing in these books.
