There have been times when my students have not been able to have the necessary materials for the most basic activities in class. As a New York City school teacher, I have often used my own money to purchase such things as pencils, notebooks, crayons, and markers, etc. Oftentimes the stipend we receive form the Ed. Dept. only serves to buy certain immediate things for the beginning of the school year. As the school year progresses many of these items need to be replenished. Most parents are able to provide these materials, yet the reality is that some parents can't. Most of my bilingual students come from homes that have only one working parent trying to make ends meet. I came from one of those homes. It is because of this that I try to provide as much basic and essential materials as possible. As part of my Money Unit in math, I set up a "Tiendita" (Store), where the students receive plastic coins and/or play money to purchase pencils, erasers, markers, colored pencils, and other school materials that may be needed throughout the year. They earn certain amount of money for such things as attendance, doing the homework, behaving with other teachers, wearing their uniforms to school, being responsible, and following the safety rules of the school. At the end of the week they write a list of materials they want to purchase, do the math, and buy what they can afford with what they have earned for the week. It is for this reason that I request your assistance in funding this proposal. Thank you.
