My Students

My students attend fourth grade at a small urban school. The school is in a low-income school district, and each year more and more cuts are made to our school, greatly affecting the resources we have. It is up to the teachers to purchase a lot of the "extra" things and materials to make our school day run smoother.

Can you imagine being in 4th grade without the basic school supplies to help you learn?

My students need these supplies in order to learn and be successful. No matter how challenging their lives are, I always try my best to provide them with a caring classroom environment for them to grow above and beyond their expectations!

My Project

My students will need these supplies from the first day of school until the last day of school. The colored pencils and crayons will help my students be creative when completing daily assignments, projects, and class activities.

With these supplies, my students can express themselves and let their imaginations fly!

In reading, they will use the colored pencils and crayons to illustrate pictures for their daily journal and to create projects for our novels. In math, they will be able to use them when creating posters for the different learning objects and for group work. In social studies, they will be able to use the supplies to create land forms, Pennsylvania booklets, and so much more! Lastly, by providing us with an electric sharpener, my students will be able to keep their colored pencils ready to help them be successful and to do their best work!

I am excited to provide my students with a fresh start next year! I appreciate all your support in making this project possible! :-)
