Craft Supplies for Mother’s Day

My students need pens to write with in writing class. By the this time, they do not have any supplies left. The glue gun and laminator are to make Mother’s Day gifts.

My Students

My students are inner-city students with a predominantly Hispanic background. They are the nicest students I have ever taught! They are eager to learn and every year we make great progress. This year I am focusing on improving their reading and social and emotional skills. To be happier, they need creative supports that decrease their anxiety. They need an environment that shows love and care to encourage them to do their very best each and every day. This is my dream!

My Project

During the Spring, I like to help students make lovely crafts to give their mothers on Mother’s Day. This year I want to laminate them to make last longer. I need the glue gun to add heavier pieces to the craft. The green letters are for a Mother’s Day bulletin board.

Also, in the Spring, students run out of supplies and pens to write with become like gold!

Lastly, I would like some air fresheners because in the Spring, they run outside more and sweat a lot!

These supplies will greatly help to end our year in practical and lovely ways!
