My Students

I have 43 lovable, loud, kind, and very smart students. They all have the ability to shine and express what makes them special. Even my little shy ones take their moment in the spotlight. Right now we are apart and we see each other on Zoom our online classroom. Well, we don’t see all of the students at the same time due to lack of internet or students wait until their parents come home so that they can use their parent's phone to login.

My kids need supplies that will help them work from home and possibly bring joy during these difficult times.

It's hard knowing that our students depend on us on a daily basis. Our students are used to having us be their support system and now we are forced to be apart in order to be safe.

My Project

Third grade is a fun grade to teach. My students this year have meant so much to me. My group of 43 students simply are sweet, rowdy, and very smart. I miss my kiddos!

Giving my kids "Happy Mail" will just bring sparks of joy.

My students need to continue working on their cursive handwriting skills. The workbooks will help them master their skills. Students will need extra pencils and pens to help them write in cursive. Some students struggle with griping their pencils as they write. That's why they need pencil grips. The pencil pouch will help my students keep their pencils, pens, pencil grips in one place.

Of course, when you work from home snacks are a must. Fruit snacks and pretzels will help keeps those smart brains filled with energy. The gummy bear inflatable will go with a sweet message that says "I miss you beary much!" The Inflatable boom box will have a message that says, "I miss jammin' with y'all." I think my kids will just have so much fun with these inflatables. This project will help my students with their handwriting and bring sparks of joy to their day.
