Help me give my students storage totes and bins, art paper, stencils, paint, and brushes for reading boats to sit in while they read.
Please join me in making a better life for my students. In our district, over 36% of our families live under the federal poverty level. Many students struggle to have their needs met, and many believe that they are stuck in the life they currently live.
I want my students to know that they have options, can have an amazing future and are not defined by their current circumstances.
A large percentage of my class is in foster care or lives with a family member. Many of my students have had little or no stability in their lives. Many students are moved from home to home, with few or no belongings. Many students have at least one family member who is gang affiliated or in a nearby prison. Many of these babies have stories that no child should be able to tell.
Many times school is the most stable and safe place that students know. That stability is important for student learning. If they don't feel safe, loved and have their needs met, they often have a difficult time learning. Thank you for helping them to have their needs met.
To get our classroom excited about reading, we are requesting supplies to make book boats for students to read in.
Students will be able to sit in their book boats (rubber totes) during their reading time.
To make our book boats we are requesting several rubber totes. We will cut the lids and make a small enclosure where kids can keep a variety of books while they read. We will use paint, stencils, paper and a variety of others supplies to decorate our book boats.
Students enjoy having a private space where they can read, and not be distracted by the other kids. This is the perfect solution.
Thank you for helping us to increase our reading.
