My Students

The students that I teach are curious, and highly motivated learners.

My third-grade class consists of general education, special education, and ESL learners who love to learn when they are participating in real-world experiences that help to satisfy their natural curiosity.

These real-world, hands-on experiences allow my students to produce work that is meaningful to them. Students who understand that math and science have benefits outside of school are more engaged.

Our Title I school believes that our population of students learn in diverse ways. Some students make the math science connection by reading books, while others love to get up and do something. When paired with content learned in the classroom, the collection of real data, experienced first-hand, is what will satisfy the thirst of all learners.

My Project

I am requesting basic school supplies to equip my students with everything they need in school and at home. My students love learning, but often do not have what they need to be successful. They come to school and have to borrow a pencil to work during the day, or take one home to complete homework. Through the use of whiteboards, students are more willing to share their work during math lessons. This also allows an opportunity for teachers to assess the level of learning during the lessons.

Giving all of my students the basic supplies will ensure that all of the students in my class have the supplies and materials that they need to learn to the best of their abilities.

Pencils, erasers, motivational stickers, and colored paper will be used as tools for my student's lessons, and as interactive notebook supplies. This will help them to have the materials handy in an organized neat way.
