My students are sixth graders in a multicultural urban community. We have an extremely limited budget with minimal support from our local government to fund basic supplies.
These students love their neighborhood school because it creates a sense of community.
This is especially important because many of the students come from broken homes. They are excited to learn but often times do not have access to the same materials that other students have from surrounding districts which leaves them at a disadvantage.
Colored paper makes student work STAND OUT! My students feel important when they can use the bright colored paper to display their work in our hallways. It also is wonderful to use for projects. It is great to use for printing out games and posters and anchor charts. It is used greatly in my classroom for notices home so they aren't forgotten or their own student schedules so that they can see it from a mile away.
Help my students work stand out!
It will be used to print out some of their all about me posters, and their narrative writing pieces. Help us show how BRIGHT we are!
