My Students

I am blessed with 16 first grade students in my classroom who are eager to learn and explore the world around them. However, my students come from many different backgrounds, which sometimes makes it difficult for students to be exposed to grade-level content at home. Students come from homes that are unable to provide basic supplies, not to mention school supplies. They are made up from a diverse set of backgrounds and include English language learners, special education students, and those receiving free or reduced-price lunches. Some of my students may even experience being homeless during the school year. Homelessness is an experience that individual people have, rather than a label. It is my goal as their teacher to provide them with basic necessities.

68% of our students receive free or reduced-price meals.

My students are very grateful for your support!

My Project

These resources will be used every day by the students. Many of the supplies such as crayons, pencils, glue sticks and markers will be used for all academic areas such as reading, writing and art. The cardstock paper will be used for student art activities. Giving the students basic supplies will ensure that all of the students in my class have an equal start and have the supplies and materials that they need to learn to the best of their abilities.

These materials will improve my classroom by giving the students the basic tools they need to complete their school assignments.

These supplies including crayons, pencils, glue sticks, markers, and cardstock are the every day tools used in a first grade classroom.
