My Students

My students are sad and disappointed that we are not learning in the classroom. However they are still motivated to achieve their goals. My students have limited resources at their homes to use to complete assignments. Many do not even have crayons, markers, highlighters or the daily essentials needed to complete written work.

My Project

Most of my students went home on March 17th without their supplies. It was a Friday with little homework assigned so most did not even take home their binders. My students are in need of pencils, highlighters and coloring supplies to help them with at home learning. Out of the 90 students that I have, 45 of them have been very engaged daily, and for that they deserve a treat. It is not easy learning home home. My students have added distractions of siblings, phones, video games, their bed they want to sleep in, TV and even parents who are working from home.

My students are self-motivated right now and are well deserving of a small pick me up.

I would love to be able to deliver goody bags to my students that have been engaged and self motivated during these rough times. I would also like to make sure all of my students have the materials they need to learn from home.
