Happiness, Like Unhappiness is a Proactive Choice

My students need Daily Reading Warm-Ups, math flash cards, and an iPad mini.

My Students

Academic success is the result of effective teaching and motivation. Having these materials will engage my students and help them be successful learners.

My students are highly motivated students in a public elementary school.

They work hard and strive to succeed. Each one has a story to tell and is excited to share their knowledge with their classmates, family, and friends. When one student succeeds, they all strive to do the same.

My Project

I am requesting math flash cards, Daily Reading Warm-Ups, and an iPad mini. These materials will supplement student learning in all academic areas and support student knowledge of math facts and reading comprehension by practice and reinforcement. These supplies will provide opportunities for varied student learning in whole group or learning centers. They will strengthen and enrich my students' skills, while they learn to love learning!

These academic materials are very important for my students because they are necessary tools to be successful in and out of the classroom.

The materials will energize and motivate my students to work hard and gain knowledge.
