My Students

Many of my students have no books at home and love to choose books from our class library. They love listening to stories and reading books.

My students work hard and love new challenges.

They love learning new things, and doing hands on science experiments. For the biggest majority COVID has impacted their education negatively. They are at least one grade level behind, some are two grade levels behind. They each work so hard to learn what they need to to progress. I am lucky to have each one of them in my class!

My Project

Many of my students do not have books at home. Having books in a classroom library is a must. My students love getting to choose a book of their choice, that they will enjoy reading. Every book has been chosen with them in mind. Getting new books will give them more choices. This is something that can be used for years to come.

Getting books that students will enjoy reading during small group time and independent reading will help instill a love of reading.

Students get hungry while at school and being able to give them a healthy snack will help them be able to concentrate and learn the concepts to the best of their ability.

Having some math manipulatives and games will help students who are struggling and need a little bit of extra time on the concept.
