My Students

I teach gifted resource in New Orleans, in a high poverty, high achievement school. Bringing students on board and including all of my students are important goals for this academic year. A majority of my students are on a free lunch program. My parents are on board but they cannot provide the needed supplies as they are struggling with two jobs to make ends meet.

We need these essential classroom supplies for in person learning to keep social distancing and safety measures.

Please help my class get the essential supplies needed for allowing in person learning to happen in a safe learning environment.

My Project

We needed essential classroom materials for students in-person learning. During this Covid 19 pandemic when we are starting in person learning we have to at times do distance learning too, it is utmost importance for students to have their assigned seats and their individualized materials to avoid conatct and maintain safe distance while learning.

We are using seating charts to minimize the spread of the virus during in person learning, we need durable bags for sorting, kleenex, disinfectant spay and motivational posters to encourage students' participation during these stressful times.

These materials and fidget toys for keeping students engaged are going to be a great resource for in person learning where all students will need to use their own materials.

These will come in handy to motivate and maintain a safe classroom during in person learning. These posters will brighten up my classroom and I can use them daily as they are very durable have a multi-purpose use to help you free up space while staying organized.
