My Students

The students in my class are hardworking, caring, and eager to learn. They come from many different backgrounds and types of families. The majority of my class receive free or reduced-price lunches based on socioeconomic status. These students do not often get a lot of support at home. Therefore, they need a lot of extra support, attention, and love in the classroom.

It is amazing to see the students' excitement when they meet a goal or read a text they never thought they would be able to read.

They need intervention, excitement, and encouragement to be confident in themselves and grow as learners every day. I look forward to helping them grow during their 3rd-grade year.

My students enjoy being active, engaged, and excited about learning. They love doing centers, experiments, and engaging projects! They need a lot of encouragement and motivation to help them be successful and continue to grow in their learning.

My Project

Educational budgets today continue to decrease and there are many supplies that are in high demand. Making copies and getting copy paper is a constant struggle in the classroom. The purchase of these six Fire tablets will allow my students to read books on the tablets rather than books made with copies and a lot of paper. This would help my students have access to more books and reading activities.

I want my students to be fired up about reading and writing.

These tablets will offer books for small guided reading groups, free reading, and reading skills practice. My students would be grateful for the new technology and supplies for our class!
