My Students

Third grade is a huge year for kids to grow and explore the world. My students are extremely curious and kind humans who love to learn about others and the world. They love to use hands-on materials to understand difficult concepts and to problem solve. Within my classroom, we have over a dozen languages and cultures represented. Our classroom diversity provides an amazing environment for us all to learn from each other every day. As a community, we strive to think critically and treat one another with respect and kindness! It is essential that we have the community materials we need to learn and grow together.

My Project

These learning tools and materials will be used throughout the day to support and encourage every student! The folders will help each student organize their work in every subject. This way they can see their learning across the year. Students will use the black pens for writing, blue pens for revising, and red pens for editing their work. We will use the green pens to show revising in math! The dry erase pens will be used during math and reading lessons to allow students to try out their ideas at the carpet or during partner time. Students will use the pencils and post-its to track their thinking during book clubs. Students love to share their reading post-its to show what they are learning about their topic or character.

I believe these tools will make a huge impact on my students' learning every day!

Every student deserves access to quality learning supplies and tools. If this project is funded, it will support my students in every subject, all year long!
