My Students

My students come from a variety of different backgrounds with 100% of our school's students receiving free lunch. We are located in the Appalachian area and, unfortunately, in one of the areas with high poverty and drugs. Sadly, for many of our students the only meal they receive is at school and a big portion of our students receive backpack meals on weekends. Likewise, absentee parents and the drug epidemic impacts the students' ability to provide school supplies, school performance, as well as ability to complete assignments out side of school. Hence, it is even more pressing that I provide the children with the most resources possible while they are at school. We are also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in Campbell County-being one of the few to receive ESL services.

However, even with the hardships the students in my area face, my kiddos come to school with a smile and eager for knowledge.

They are the sweetest children you will ever come across and are a blessing to me every day.

My Project

My students need access to the stories that we read as part of our whole group activities in ELA, Math, Science ,and Social Studies. Unfortunately, much of the time supplies are limited and we only have one copy or we have to watch a YouTube video of the book. As a result, the text is not available to the students during learning centers or for individual enjoyment.

My students will use these materials to listen, watch, and/or read books during Learning Centers and revisit daily skills for each story.

These materials will be used mainly at the Library station, but would be available for students to revisit as needed while working at other stations. In addition, the students would be able to revisit multiple stories or previous stories. Whereas, now the students only get to hear the book as we read it during whole group.

Your generous donation to my project will help my 2nd graders by building stronger readers and fostering a love for reading. The students will be eager to read and will love reading their new Chromebook. This will change my students' lives for the better and continue to build their drive for knowledge.
