My Students

Our students attend an inner-city public school where approximately 90% live below the poverty line. We spend a lot of time doing hands-on learning.

All of our students receive a free or reduced-price lunch and participate in the backpack program on the weekends.

This does not stop our students from coming to school and showing their love for learning. We love to explore everything around us, both inside and outside of the classroom. We love to show what we know and learn in a hands-on way.

My Project

These materials will make a huge difference in our room. The dough mats will help us strengthen our hands as we practice making letters and numbers out of craft dough. The tangram cards will allow us to explore how simple shapes can make a much bigger pictures. The Elephant linking game will allow us to practice counting in a fun way. The incentive charts will help us to keep track of all of our accomplishments. The google eyes will make our crafts more fun, and the storage bins will help us to keep everything in place so we can find it.
