My Students

I have 20 fun and energetic students who love to be in school. They love to explore and are really beginning to understand print concepts!

We would love to have new reading material to be able to write out student reports on to share with other students and families.

The students are learning at fantastic rates, but I want to be able to help them instantly know if they are understanding the concepts. My students are unique and love to learn about new things. I believe that they should have the opportunity to learn about math and art and writing in new and unique ways. They need engaging and fun materials that are engaging for all.

My Project

These books will help my students grow and excel in the classroom. I need new reading material for my classroom. My students are learning at an incredible rate and I cannot keep up with their books. These scholastic science books will benefit every single student I have now and for years to come. These students come to school ready to learn and I would love to have books that they can grab and read right away. These books would be well loved and enjoyed by all students. I truly believe that given th chance my students will cherish these books and flourish!
