My Students

I teach literacy to 60 fifth graders in the Philadelphia School District. It is my first year teaching at this school and my classroom is in need of many materials to meet the needs of my varied student ability levels. My students are extremely diverse!

While my students' needs are very different, they all share the same desire to learn.

I teach two inclusion classes of fifth grade students. Half of my student have an IEP or LEP. They are all so driven and have a true desire to succeed and grow. The children impress me daily as they are an extremely collaborative and supportive community of learners. It is my goal to give them the opportunities to continue to grow into well rounded, globally minded learners.

My Project

Our construction paper supply has completely depleted. Our markers are dried out. Our pencils have been sharpened into nubs. Though it is only November, we have worked through many of our classroom supplies. I am a fifth grade inclusion teacher, I strive to make learning as hands on and engaging as possible for my students of varied needs and ability levels. Having these supplies enables me to do so.

We are in need of classroom art supplies to keep our flexible classroom creative and cooperative.

Students will use the paper, pencils, and markers to illustrate their writing and create books. We will also use the supplies as materials for our literacy centers. Thank you for consideration in making a donation to our project.
