My Students

My class is a fun, outgoing, curious group of 8 and 9-year-olds. Each one of them has their unique strengths and differences. They love to learn, explore, use technology, and ask questions. Our goal is to encourage innovators, creators, and individuals that will change this world!

Each student in my class is unique and learns differently from the next.

My students need supplies to help share their experiences with our school, parents, and the community. My students need an apple pencil and a special hole punch for our projects.

We are from a small town in Texas trying to do great things!

My Project

My students LOVE to use technology. We love to upload images and write on our iPads. The only problem is my students have very sloppy writing on the iPads when they use their fingers. I have tried buying cheap styluses and they break after a week. I would love to give my students the opportunity to write on their iPads with an apple pencil to allow them to write correctly and show their work where I can read it!

We also need some other items that would make our life easier in the classroom.

We love to have relaxing lighting in the room. We need a hanging light so we can dim the fluorescent lights and calm our brains. We need laminating pouches so we can laminate pretty much everything! Task cards, handouts, projects.. we will laminate them to be used again and again.

We also need a special hole punch and tab creator. We have a lot of handouts and graphic organizers we use in third grade. This would allow us to put them all together in a binder that we can insert new pages and pull pages out to be used. This will allow us to have access to these helpful handouts quicker and more efficiently.
