My Students

My football-themed classroom is a place full of energy and excitement where MVP students eagerly enter each day ready to "tackle" their learning tasks. All students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch and many also receive food from a local church to take home for the weekends. You would never guess the hardships my students face by watching them in our classroom. They are happy, helpful, and hardworking. Learning is truly a team effort in our class, and we consider every single player a vital part of our team.

My Project

Our class printer is no longer working, so we are unable to print standards based learning games, our class newsletter, reading passages, special projects, etc. The new printer would enable us to do all of these things again. We also need printer ink and colorful paper. After 2 years of use, our football beanbags are now completely flat. My students LOVE them and still sit on them flat on the floor. They would be thrilled to have stuffed beanbags again.

Colorful learning games and comfortable beanbag seating would be used daily in our classroom to help students master third grade skills.
