Competing with Common Core

My students need daily comprehension workbooks, close read task cards, and math manipulatives to conquer the new state standards for fourth grade.

My Students

My students are inner-city students that are respectful and excited to learn!

The students are young Philadelphians with loads of energy and are eager to explore new things.

The classroom is very diverse and students' backgrounds vary greatly. Many students qualify for free and reduced lunches. They are well-behaved children who need the resources necessary to achieve.

My Project

I am requesting materials that will replace the workbooks and texts that our school is not replenishing. The reading comprehension books will be used each day in Reading Language Arts. They will take the place of the previous workbooks. I requested close reading cards and non-fiction task cards to supplement lessons that encourage critical thinking skills. The math resources requested are aligned with the new state standards, Pennsylvania Common Core.

The donations to this project will provide materials to students that are in need of basic workbooks, textbooks, and materials that will help them meet the new state standards in Pennsylvania.
