Help me give my students pencils, dry erase markers, zipper pouches, and other materials to have a successful school year.
My classroom is made up of 20 amazing learners. They come to class ready to learn despite the obstacles they face prior to stepping foot in the classroom. We are a Title I school, and almost all of my students are English language learners. My students love coming to school because I make learning fun. My students work hard each and every day. Unfortunately, they need supplies that I cannot provide on my own. This includes basic classroom items that we use every single day!
"Look for the bare necessities. The simple bare necessities."- from Disney's The Jungle Book
Every year I try and provide all of the general supplies for my classroom.
Unfortunately, this can get quite expensive.
Every night, my students take home a homework folder that is filled with helpful resources for them to use with their families. In the back, I have a special Velcro folder attached for students to store their guided reading book and sight word cards. These folders have been a huge success in the past. I'm requesting new zipper pouches for students to carry pencils, erasers, and notes home. Students can also use it to store the tokens that they earn in the classroom.
I'm also requesting book buddy bags, dry erase markers, pencil pouches, laminating pouches, and pencils. The book buddy bags will be used every single day. On Mondays, students can go and "shop" for 5 books that they want to read all week with their family. After the week is over they will get new books. These are basic materials that we frequently use throughout the year.
By helping to fund this project, you will be putting important supplies into the hands of children. These materials will allow my students to master skills they need to be successful lifelong learners.
