Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is made up of 4th and 5th graders who absolutely love learning. I am always looking for materials to encourage critical thinking skills, creativity, and curiosity. The school district that I teach in has a low-income rate of over 70%, as well as a mobility rate of more than 30%.

My students absolutely love sharing their learning in creative ways.

They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. I love to see their creativity and watch them interact with each other to encourage the success of their fellow learners.

My Project

These supplies will give each of my students the materials necessary to create a presentation board that will make them proud. The supplies will help them be able to creatively design a way to share their learning with others. Markers, construction paper, and the presentation boards will make their creation even more pleasing to all of the people who come to see their projects.

With these supplies, my students will be able to use their creativity to design presentation boards to showcase their own learning.

Each item was specifically chosen to make sure all of my students have the necessary supplies for their projects. With these supplies, we can prepare for a variety of projects throughout the year. These supplies will help students take pride in their independent projects.
