My Students

I teach at a Title I elementary school in Texas. All of my students receive free lunch and come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. I also have students who come from other countries and are simply learning a new way of life. They do not speak English and are learning how to cope in my classroom.

The materials in this project will help make my classroom environment more inviting and give the students an at-home feel.

I will be able to keep track of student supplies as well as create holiday items, make field day shirts, and create a variety of numbers and letters using different fonts and materials.

My Project

By donating to my project, you will help my pre-K kids take crafting to a whole new level. Not only will they we able to create holiday gifts for their parents, but also the extended family as well. We will also be able to use the heat press machine to make field day shirts, hats, and individualized water bottles. I will be able to use these items, if funded, to create an unlimited amount of phonics and math games to use throughout the school year and for many years to come. We will be able to use these materials to label our supplies in a fun and colorful way.
