My Students

My fourth-grade class has 32 students in it. My students are eager to learn, enjoy school and are motivated to succeed. They love to use their imagination and grow as learners. We are a large school with over 1,000 students. We are a Title I school and all the students in my school all receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of the students in my school are English as Second Language learners. We have many different languages spoken in my school. My students come to school with big smiles and are ready to learn and achieve great things!

My Project

My students are in need of paper, pencils and folders to help them be independent learners. They will use these materials when writing in order to create amazing and beautiful published world. My students will also create projects about what they read in order to share with each other what they are learning. It makes reading and writing fun and exciting when there is choice of paper and supplies. It also will help my students to be creative and share they ideas in many ways.

Help us have a great year!

Please help fill our classroom with the supplies we need to be sucessful.
