My Students

My second graders are voracious readers! They love to read both fiction and nonfiction books. Their favorite characters include Pete the Cat, Fly Guy, Piggie and Elephant, and Mercy Watson. They also love to read about insects, space, and plants. My students are hungry bookworms! They are eager to learn and read about the world around them. My class is made up of general education students, children with special needs, and English as a new language students.

My students love to be at school and are like little sponges, absorbing everything around them.

Their parents work long hours and usually do not see their children. The children are usually cared for by their grandparents or a family friend. Most of them do not have someone who speaks English at home. Thus, it is difficult for students to acquire the English language.

Due to financial hardships, my students do not have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities during the school year or summer.

My Project

I would love to start 2020 with all the basic supplies my second graders will need to finish the school year. However, due to school budgets cuts and financial hardships for families, it has become difficult for students to have all the materials they need for a successful school year.

Second graders will need basic classroom supplies such as pencils, markers, assortment of paper, and reward stickers for a busy school year!

My students will go through an enormous amount of pencils, Post Its, index cards, paper, and markers during reading, writing, and math workshops in the classroom and at home. To motivate students, they will also have the opportunity to earn reward stickers for their effort throughout the school day. The sheet protectors will help students organize their work in their folders. At the end of the day, my students will use the Clorox wipes to keep their school supplies clean on a daily basis. Classroom helpers will be responsible for sharpening the dull pencils daily.

Your donation to this project will provide my students with the basic supplies they will need for the rest of the school year.
