My Students

A typical day in Ms C's classroom would not include students being quiet. My students are full of energy and are ready to learn. My students are very vocal and can explain to you what they want and what they need.

My students, who are special to me, come from a very challenging background.

Our students live in a no to low income area. Many of their nutritious meals come from school. Many of them come to school hungry looking for a hot meal to eat. In my class there are always snacks and extra clothing for our students. I feel it isn't their fault their parents are having trouble feeding or keeping them clean. Our school holds clothing drives and many donation collections for our families.

My Project

The materials I am requesting is to help my students be more engaged with the alphabet. My students need a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom book, activity tree, magnetic board printing card, alphabet maze, and alphabet bowling. I want them to have the new and latest educational items to help make learning fun. Wouldn't you like to go bowling with the alphabet? I know my students would. This will help them say the letters as they knock them down .

Your help will help enhance the education of the students in my classroom.

I wish I had an unlimited amount of money to help and supply my class. With people like you you would have helped 20 bright students in my class. Thank you again for all of you help and for making education first.
