My Students

Do you remember creating a fun project and being proud that the teacher displays it for all to see? The materials in this project will help my students learn through a variety of activities.

My 2nd grade students attend a Title I school in Pennsylvania.

They come from a variety of backgrounds and struggles. Even with these struggles they come to school and try their hardest to be the best students they can be. Because of their perseverance and dedication to their learning, I would like to provide them with different tools to help them learn and with a variety of activities and projects to further their learning.

My Project

By donating to this project, you will help my students be successful and enthusiastic learners. The Velcro will allow me to display different tools, such as word wall, charts, and student work, that will help enhance my students' learning. Also, we use paper everyday to complete different projects and assignments, such as collect data in science, draw a map for social studies, make a graph for math, and publish interesting stories for writing.

The materials requested would create a lasting impact on my students.

Your donation will allow us to continue to learn, create, and love learning. The paper and Velcro will make a great difference as my students grow as writers, readers, mathematicians, scientists, and more.
