Let's CUT To The Chase...We Need Scissors!

My students need a good set of scissors to use in our classroom!

My Students

"Could you see if you can find this book for me?" I'll never forget the day that one of my students, who who swore the first day I met her that she hated reading and would never enjoy it, started making book requests when she found out I was going to a used book store. Or another student, who I overheard tell a friend, "Read this. It will take your on a journey you can't possibly imagine!"

This is why I do what I do.

I want to show my students that learning isn't just something you do at school. It's something that gives you the key to a door that opens to a whole new world ready for you to explore. Students enter worlds they never knew existed and understand concepts they never dreamed to imagine.

My students are a group of wild, independent, and vastly different people that, without realizing it, end up teaching me more than I could ever teach them.

My Project

I love doing projects with my students. In reading, writing, and social studies we complete activities that help to show learning. Some of my student's favorites are projects that involved arts and creativity. However, completing projects like this require scissors...good scissors that fit my fifth graders' hands!

It seems silly, but not having a good set of scissors makes any projects involving cutting nearly impossible.

I'm not talking little scissors that work great for early elementary students, but good quality scissors that my kids (some with hands bigger than mine!) can use!

Right now anytime we need scissors we have to borrow them from a neighboring teacher. We'd love a set to call our own!
