My Students

Every morning I go to my classroom, I am embraced by my students. My students are phenomenal little human beings. They are full of life, spirit, energy, and hunger to learn. They remind me of me. They are full of happiness and joy to learn, give, play, and share with the world.

My students lift me up and inspire me every day to be the best person that I can be.

The way they embrace learning gives me hope in our coming future.

My Project

Please help me give my students privacy folders. Students need these folders for privacy during testing time or independent work. I only have a small amount of privacy folders and I want to make sure that everyone in the classroom has one and no one feels left out. Additionally, our students need book bags so that they can take books home for extra reading and their library books too! Finally, please help give our students and I storage to store our sentence strips.

We are in need of privacy folders, book bags, and a sentence strip storage container to help run our literacy stations and classroom smoothly.

Wit your support, our classroom will have the essentials needed for our literacy instruction and development in our classroom.
