My Students

My students are an amazing group of fourth graders. They love learning and work hard everyday to grow their brains! As we have started the year they have eagerly taken on the challenges of multiplication, division, evidence based reading and close reading!

Almost all of my students live in the communities around our school in Southeast D.C.

They work hard and play hard all day from 8-3. They love hands on learning especially with math manipulatives.

Many of my students have expressed a great love for learning and I do everything I can to keep their energy and love for school thriving!

My Project

The paper in this project will go towards making homework, daily fluency activities, science fair materials and countless other uses throughout the next few months. Many of my students' parents have been asking for homework and so this paper will be a big help for them to support their students at home. I am also looking to do a science fair with my students and paper will be needed for communication home as well as creating guidelines.

We use paper for fluency worksheets, math homework and other activities daily.

Paper is unfortunately not provided in sufficient quantities to provide my students with all of the opportunities I want to create for them. Thank you for your support of my classroom! I can't wait to create science fair materials as well as different math projects for my students.
