My Students

Our school is home to a very diverse group of students. My students are high-risk and come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Many of my students face challenges before they even arrive at school each day. Many of these challenges include situations many adults have never had to face in their lifetime.

Many of my students may go to bed hungry and may not even have a bed to sleep in each night.

I want my students to be able to learn in a safe and comfortable environment. Our classroom is a mobile unit, but I try and make it feel as warm and welcoming as possible.

My Project

I need to be able to reinforce various skills with my students through learning centers and games. With the ink and card stock, I will be able to create those centers and various learning games for my students to use during designated times throughout the day. They will review math, reading, science, and social studies skills through the center games. Having these center games will be a fun and engaging way for my students to be able to work together while they learn! Please consider donating to my project! My students and I will be grateful for any amount donated.
