My Students

I am a NYC teacher working in a Title I school located in Queens, where every student receives free breakfast and lunch. I teach 32 creative, young children but want to create a conducive and cheerful learning environment. My class of first graders come from diverse backgrounds with mixed abilities and varied interest. I am eager to watch them enter our new classroom ready to learn, discover, and explore. My goal is to provide a great education for my wonderful students and help develop each child's unique talent and celebrate their individuality.

My Project

Although these are basic supplies, my students and I really need these materials during the school year. The colored card stock papers will be used for publishing their books and for various center activities. I also print many charts and would love to keep them lasting. When the kids are finished with their work, they can work on the prepared activities and having it color-coded will make it easier for them to know which one to work on. The art caddies are needed to store their crayons and markers in each table. The paper trays will help sort the different colored papers. Please help us get what we need and the colors would just make learning even more fun.
