I have a very inquisitive group of fifth graders. My students are so eager to learn and explore the world. These fifth graders come from low-income backgrounds and are mostly English learners. The students I teach have parents who work hard to provide for their family.
I have a very inquisitive group of 5th graders who are ready to start the year off right!
Our school is located in a neighborhood where English is not spoken in many households. The parents of my students want the best for their children. They are dedicated to their children's education and expect their teachers to guide their child toward a path of success. I expect this of myself and want these kids to become lifelong learners and seek additional education after graduation. Many of my students would be the first in their families to attend college.
The start of a new school year means new school supplies for 32 fifth graders! With so many parents spending money on back to school clothes, backpacks, and lunch boxes, I try to provide as many new supplies to be used in class as I can.
I want all my students to have these much needed school supplies that they can use in class all year.
Some of these supplies will be used for fun, unique art projects, others are used for daily writing and editing. I've also included a small book display shelf I can stock with books that relate to current topics in class!
With 32 fifth graders, supplies can be costly for me, and my hope is to get some of the beginning of the year supplies funded through this project. I know my students will appreciate having fresh, new supplies to kick off this school year!
