Exploring Diversity Through Art and Culture

Help me give my students some books, art supplies including markers and multicultural crayons, tape and a Chromebook.

My Students

Many of my wonderful students are deemed at-risk. Nine of them are over a 1.5 years below grade level. They all want to learn and they work very hard. My students often do not have pencils, crayons or books and they generally do not participate in after school activities; they rarely have access to technology outside of school. I teach at an older, urban school where many of my students are the children of deployed military personnel. All of our kids are eligible for free breakfast and lunch but we are not a Title One school. As a result, we lack the resources and opportunities of many other economically disadvantaged schools.

My students attend school in one of the most multicultural districts in the United States and many of them are English Language Learners who have recently arrived in this country.

They seldom go on field trips because they cannot afford the fees. School is everything to them.

No matter what yardstick you use-CCSS, No Child Left Behind or something else, my students need help with writing, reading, number sense and math. They also have essential needs that are cannot be met by our school.

My Project

Second grade is a very important year in the lives of students. They have so much to learn. They need to learn to read, write, do basic reports and make presentations using dry erase markers and they need to learn about different cultures. This year, my students will learning about artists as a way of expanding their appreciation of diversity. They will be reading books, taking notes with the markers and then writing a report using the requested Chromebook. Finally, they will print and share their report. Unfortunately, we lack the necessary supplies for learning. Our markers are dry, our staples are a memory, our tape is gone and (when our room was rented) someone broke our Chromebook!

My school is not a Title One school, but we are a school that is economically disadvantaged and our supply budget is almost nonexistent.

I am requesting dry erase markers that work, staples, tape and a Chromebook so my wonderful students can complete their projects. There is no money for this type of project. My students need your help.

I want my students to be proud of their work. I want them to smile when they share their reports. They will work hard to do a good job. Please help them.
