My Students

We are a fourth-grade, integrated, co-teaching classroom. Our students are an enthusiastic group of students who are learning life lessons! There are two teachers in our classroom: a special education teacher, and a general education teacher. We also have many wonderful support staff in and out of our room all day.

We have 32, super motivated, fourth-grade students, who love to learn.

Our environment is made up of a community of learners who love to explore new ideas. We love to learn!

My Project

Please help us! We really need copy paper. If we had enough copy paper we would be able to complete many fun activities. The students love using the resources we can create using colored copy paper. We have many fun projects lined up that we cannot do without copy paper. One project we are so excited to use copy paper for is to study all about plant life cycles. We plan to use the color copy paper to type up data from our plant experiments. We will also use the paper when studying topics in math. Many times we have to adapt the math lessons to meet the needs of all learners. We find fun worksheets and math centers that the students love. In order to print these activities we need copy paper. Please help us.

The students love to have copy paper for activities.

The different copy paper allows us to differentiate learning. It also gives the students motivation to learn. We really could use the copy paper.
