Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

"Miss, do you have any colored pens I can use?" "Do you have any extra folders?" Without fail, these are some of the most frequently asked questions in my classroom.

At my high-needs school, most students qualify for the free lunch program, meaning they are unable to obtain the most basic school supplies, such as pens and paper.

My students are a bright, enthusiastic group of individuals who genuinely enjoy learning. It saddens me that they often go without their much-needed school supplies.

My Project

For this proposal, I am requesting classroom basics including highlighters, folders, glue sticks, colored pencils, and flashcards. The folders will be used to help students keep track of their work for the current unit, while the colored pens and will help them annotate their reading assignments to help show their understanding. Having these supplies in my classroom available in the storage bins I am requesting will enable me to focus more on instruction and the planned activities, instead of scrounging up supplies for the students. It also creates a more inclusive environment, as students with different needs and abilities are able to have the proper tools to succeed. Students will be able to participate in the day's lesson and complete projects without having to worry about having the resources needed.

Without the basic tools used for studying, my students are not able to grow as readers, writers, and thinkers.

My students see themselves as scholars, and there is no reason why they should be without the most basic school supplies. With your help, every student will have access to the materials that will give them the education they deserve.
