My Students

My Third graders come to school every day ready to engage in exciting learning and spend all day in our creative classroom. They are smiling, enthusiastic, second language learners, who need to access the curriculum with a linguistic barrier. They persevere in their efforts to read, write, think critically, and develop their 21st-century skills with the limited technology and resources that our Title I school can provide. Their parents struggle with an array of socio-economic hardships, and my goal is to equip my classroom with as many books, instructional materials, technology, and art supplies, and life essentials as possible!

My Project

Greetings donors! It's that time of the year to welcome the new students into my Third grade class!

We are requesting pens, notebooks, and tape to catapult my students' writing!

I am almost ready to go in setting up the learning environment as the school year commences next Tuesday, but am still missing a few items due to a shortage of funds at my school site!

We would greatly appreciate these composition notebooks for Reading and Writing Workshop along with the pens to have my students set up for a successful year in developing their literacy skills! The tape will be used to decorate their notebooks and reinforce them in order to have them generate ideas for their published works!
