My students need supplies! Pencils (and a sharpener for them!), paper, and dry erase markers are always in need.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Remember the song "No more pencils, no more books...."? Well, that first line is part of what my students contend with every day. They have no pencils, no paper, or some other school supply is missing. How can I expect them to learn when they do not have the material tools they need?
I teach Language Arts in a Title I school in rural Tennessee; 85% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
Many of my students come to school without the supplies they need to make it through the day. In order for them to learn, they need to know the basics are available for them.
I am requesting loose leaf filler paper, pencils and sharpeners along with dry erase markers. Right now, we do not use our individual dry erase boards because we do not have enough markers to go around. I like to vary how we write our class-work and how the students do their group work by giving them something other than paper to work with. This is where the dry erase boards and markers come into play.
They also need to use the "old fashioned" paper and pencil technique when they complete homework assignments! It is hard for students to complete their assignments without these necessary items.
My students like coming into class, they know that lessons will be fun and interactive in my room.
By providing them with the supplies they may be lacking, I can continue to provide them with a safe, fun environment to learn in.
