My Students

I have 36 students in my class who are 6 and 7 years old. I teach in a collaborative classroom. Our school is located in a high poverty area, and all students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch. Even though my students do not come from the best home life, they come in each and every day very eager to learn. We spend just about every day on the floor working on our reading and math skills. We learn our skills through games and activities. My students really love the hands-on activities that we have been fortunate to be able to do.

My Project

My students and I need the organization materials for the school year in order to make center games and organize our teaching materials. I would love to make new center games for my students this year. They love to play games while learning. It makes the learning a lot more fun if they get to play a game while doing so. The cardstock and the lamination paper would be perfect to make those with.

This year we got some new teaching material that we need to get organized.

The binders would be the perfect thing to help us get those in order. Since we teach in a low poverty school system these items would typically have to come out of the teacher's pockets. My students and I appreciate everything we receive!
