I have approximately 130 8th grade language arts students. These students come from various socioeconomic backgrounds, many who are on the free and reduced lunch program. Many are unable to bring the school supplies that we need in the classroom on a daily basis.
I want to provide my students with the best classroom experience that I can.
Having the necessary supplies in my classroom will help make each day a positive experience for my students. Having supplies readily available in class gives the students one less thing to worry about.
My students have so many things to worry about, school supplies should not be one of them. Back to school supplies can be costly for most families, I want to be able to provide needed supplies for all of my students.
A well prepared student can focus all of their energy on learning.
If every student has what they need, it levels the learning field.
Not having to worry if they have pencils and paper, will allow my students to focus on the important things. Being able to provide the necessities to my students ensures a successful learning classroom and environment.
