Fifth grade is known to be a difficult transition year for students. Academically, they are being challenged more than ever before as they get ready to exit their elementary careers and embark on their secondary educational journey. Emotionally, they are going to critical changes that are effecting their actions and behaviors as they define a personality and sense of self. This is why teaching 5th grade has always been dear to my heart. Everyday I know that my students are undergoing several changes as they try to accomplish their goals.
My students are inquirers that strive to grow and expand their minds daily.
We are goal setters who constantly try to create the best version of ourselves. Even though many of my students face issues that are difficult for even some adults such as foster care, homelessness, low socioeconomic challenges, and unstable homes, they still bring their best attitudes, hopes, and dreams every day to embrace their future.
Our school just got approved to be an AVID elementary school. Unfortunately, we are a school that have several students that would not be able to start the school year with the organizational tools they would need to stay on track in an AVID program.
I'd like to give my students a head start!
This small donation of 3-ring binders would help get them started in the AVID program. I will be working out of my own pocket to also provide dividers and planners for the students so that can start off the school year ready to succeed. These materials will help students be college and career ready both in 5th grade and beyond.
