My Students

My students are very special because not only are they overcoming living in a low-income/high poverty school district and neighborhood, but they deal with a wacky teacher with extremely high expectations. Despite the many challenges that they face on a day-to-day basis, they continue to put their best foot forward when they enter my classroom each day. My students are bright and full of wonder. When I plan my plan my lessons, I plan to spark their curiosity by exposing my students to new subjects and ideas.

My students love to read and they love to see their reading progress through their reading levels each quarter.

They also love to see their mathematics progress posted on the board after each math unit assessment. Their academic growth intrigues them and motivates them to always try their best and to keep an open mind when learning something new. I hope to continue to inspire our early learners to strive for academic excellence.

My Project

Throughout the year, we will complete countless cut and paste activities that coincide with out literacy and math units. We will also complete various craft activities that require the use of glue. My students often times forget to put caps back on our glue sticks which causes them to dry out before they get used a second time.

Sometimes when its time to paste or glue something for an activity, the entire class has to share 2 or 3 glue sticks which takes up a lot of time and leaves students with idol time.

My students don't bring in glue and the glue that we have in our classroom are the ones that I have purchased. Although glue is inexpensive, when you have to replace it as often as I do it becomes very costly. Please help my students to get the supplies we need to complete our cut and paste activities.
