Mrs. C.'s Super Stars

My students need a new rug, chart stand, and basic supplies such as a pencil sharpener and a chart tablet to help get us through the year. As a title 1 school we are short many necessary supplies.

My Students

Think back to your best year in school. Engaging, lively, and fun filled lessons probably flood your mind. Having engaging experiences is the greatest way to get students excited about learning. I want my students to leave this year enlightened, enriched and excited about learning.

I currently teach an amazing population in a Title I charter school.

My fifth grade students are very engaged in learning. Currently we have a mixed class filled with gifted students as well as students that are above grade level. Their passion for learning is evident in all that they do. Having limited classroom resources makes the task of keeping them engaged and excited difficult. I would love to have the necessary resources to continually engage students in intimate student facilitated discussions and lessons through the use of carpet time with the students and myself sitting together discussing ideas and exploring new topics.

My Project

My students need a new rug, chart stand, and basic supplies such as a pencil sharpener and a chart tablet to help get us through the year. Having a carpet available for the class to sit on together will allow us to participate in more intimate and student lead discussions. The pressure of a traditional classroom seems to melt away when students are engaging in lessons together on the floor as opposed to feeling like they are being lectured at their desks. A chart easel with paper and markers will allow myself as the facilitator, as well as the students to record ideas from our lessons, and refer to them throughout the topics we discuss. Basic supplies such as pencils and a pencil sharpener, which we are already short on, will provide basic needs to allow us to function optimally as a class without the fear of missing basic supplies.

A donation of these basic supplies will help make the difference for these students.

In a community that is financially hurting, having outside donors show they care about our class by supplying basic needs will help inspire my kids to achieve greatness. Who wouldn't take the opportunity to help fund our future?
