My Students

My kids rock. Plain and simple. They are hard working, enthusiastic 8 and 9 year olds who live in a neighborhood in San Francisco. They are determined, energetic and hard workers.

Our classroom motto is: We think we can, we work hard, and we get smart - my students take this to heart everyday when they show up eager and ready to learn!

Most of my class qualifies for free and reduced lunch and I want to make sure that they are provided all of the necessary tools for learning this year. These hard working kids deserve all that we can offer them!

My Project

It's time for a new school year and with it comes the need for new school supplies for my students. The materials in my project will provide the necessary tools students need to be successful learners this year.

By having the right materials, not only does it make it easier for my students to learn but it makes it easier for me to teach them!

The 3 ring binders and dividers will be used for students to create their own writers notebooks that they will use throughout the year. The composition binders will be used as readers notebooks where will they will log and track their reading comprehension skills. Post its, oh glorious post its, are used for just about everything throughout the school year, from marking important parts in books they are reading to giving feedback to their peers. The large chart paper and markers are an essential tool for me to make learning posters for students in order to support and guide their learning across all subjects. The dry erase pens and erasers will be used daily by students to complete warm up math work on dry erase boards that I already have ready for them. Of course classrooms are never complete without an ample supply of pencils and erasers.

This project will help my fantastic 3rd graders start the school year off right with all of the supplies they need to meet and exceed grade level expectations.
