My Project

Here in my Lakota class the students are excited and eager to learn language through exploration, creativity, and inspiration. Our class is special because we are learning the native language from the Dakota territories of the Lakota Nation. As we bring culture/language, and everyday academics to the class, we need much-needed supplies to achieve the level of success by reaching these needs of our youth.

Our school is a charter school based on community / cultural learning with westernized education integrated into the learning.

With the help of markers, colored pencils, and pencil sharpener we will be able to fulfill the need to reach the learning goals as well as express creativity with some of their assignments.

The supplies listed such as the art and classroom supplies will be used for art projects to color and do construction projects with our art center, to do writing assignments, and to organize their work. The file folders will be used to keep their work on file as their resource folder to show parents. We also would like to keep a clean, safe, learning space with face masks and hand sanitizer, for our school does not provide these materials. We will use the poster boards for presentations and poster-making in our target language of Lakota. The dry-erase markers are used for writing in the target language on the classroom whiteboards. Our classroom and students will directly benefit from these donations to help reach our learning goals.
