I teach fourth grade and have a wonderful group of students this year. It seems like I say that every year! My district has a large percentage of free and reduced lunch totaling 70% of our school.
This limits my students' abilities to experience educational places and technologies.
I am always looking for ways to help my students stay curious. It is my hope that these children never lose their desire to learn.
I hope that you will consider funding our classroom projects so that these students may grow and have the same opportunities as students not living in poverty.
Thank you for any help you can provide for my sweet kids.
My 4th grade students love to use paper to create projects, crafts, and activities. If you were to visit my classroom, you would see students using hands-on creativity to enhance their learning. Unfortunately, standard copy paper is too thin for many of the projects we like to make. When cardstock (especially in fun colors!) is available, our projects exceed our wildest thoughts!
Cardstock creates lasting projects that are more durable, and allow for extra creative thinking.
When cardstock is available, we have to use it sparingly, and students often have to make adjustments to their ideas due to lack of proper supplies. We will use these supplies to enhance our projects and learning in the classroom. The color selections of paper and markers will allow for added artistic touches, while the laminating sheets will provide a means for preservation of student work.
This project will allow my students to learn and create more freely in the classroom!
