My fifth grade classroom is a place of growth and learning. A high percentage of my students are learning English as a second language and benefit greatly from visual aids and hands-on activities.
The students in my Title I classroom are fifth graders in a rural Utah town.
These students are excited to learn and find joy in the challenge that the learning process can bring. This school year we are focusing on future goals in education and maximizing the potential of each child to achieve great things as they progress through life.
It's no secret: the school year requires many family trips to Walmart to get supplies. In a low-income area, this reality is not possible for many students who come from struggling families.
My students deserve access to all the materials they need to be successful.
I want them to have high-quality materials that are reflective of the high-quality students they are. When students are given materials that are in good shape, it communicates the message that what they are doing and learning is important.
As a teacher, I have done everything possible to get my students these materials and facilitate that feeling of importance. However, as the school year progresses, supplies are depleted until eventually there is nothing left. My students deserve to have everything they need. These materials will help them to finish the school year strong.
