My Students

My students are the most grateful people I have ever met! The simplest things in life get them so motivated. My students are so happy when they get to use supplies that maybe they don't have at home! In class, we often get to use clay, paint, and paper mache. It is a great feeling for both me and the students to know they have the items they need to complete a project. The children really do benefit from hands-on activities.

My Project

We can't get enough pencils throughout the year. Most of the time students forget them at home, lost the pencil somewhere on the way to school or after school, or just don't have a pencil when they come to school. It can be a hundred different reasons; we can't get enough of pencils.

These pencils, erasers, and boxes would be a great addition to the classroom.

I am asking for regular number two pencils for writing projects. I am also asking for colored pencils that we can use during art projects. We don't have any of those, so it would be a great addition.
