My Students

I teach at a Title I school in Alabama where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of my students receive family backpack snacks and meals each weekend. Despite these circumstances, my students walk into our classroom every day with exuberance and a readiness to learn. They enjoy participating in special projects that involve reading, illustrating and writing while working with partners. They take pride in their dedicated efforts and are willing to challenge their minds for the sake of learning.

My Project

My students will be able to use the table, which is much needed, for writing, practicing word building and fluency. We currently lack much needed materials and a table. By providing these items, it will greatly improve my ability to create games as well as provide the students opportunities for writing at a small center table. Although these items seem small, they are greatly needed.

Please consider the needs of our classroom so my students can have a writing table for their writing center, a much needed pencil sharpener, and index cards to be used in a variety of ways.
