Continued Learning = Growth and Achievement

My Students

Like most classrooms in the country, my 4th grade students are feeling the effects of COVID-19. My students left the classroom on March 13, 2020, leaving behind all resources and materials. Over the last few weeks, I've been trying to meet the needs of my students by providing suitable, motivational, and appropriate education materials to allow them to continue to grow as 4th grade students.

My Project

Providing my students with math, reading materials, and supplies will allow my students to continue to learn over the summer. I chose chapter books, math resources, and supplies for my students because many of them do not have these resources at their finger tips. Internet connections are slow and not always reliable, money is tight for families, and some struggle to have supplies to complete assignments.

My students need extra support in order to continue to maintain their current level and help build the skills and strategies needed to get them on grade level.

They struggle with basic reading and math skills. Knowing my students have the needed materials over the next few months will help them learn and grow.
