Privacy Please!

My students need privacy screens for testing! Some of them are having trouble with peeking at their neighbor's test. We are also in need of a reliable pencil sharpener.

My Students

Help us keep our minds (and pencils) sharp! We are learning to spell and read, and we take tests every Friday. Some of my fun first graders are having trouble keeping their eyes on their own papers. Privacy screens will help them from peeking as well as help them to concentrate!

I have a vivacious and smart group of first graders at an innovative public charter school in California.

Academic and behavioral expectations are high. We test every Friday on the standards we have learned throughout the week. Your support will enable me to support my students in their endeavors.

My Project

Privacy screens will help my little learners keep their eyes on their own testing papers. More importantly, they will be able to focus on the task at hand. So many things are distracting when you're only six years old! A reliable pencil sharpener will help us to make the most efficient use of our time in class with minimal pencil-related disruptions. The sharpener will also allow me to sharpen standard pencils as well as wide width pencils for my students who need extra fine motor support.

As a newer teacher at a charter school, funds can sometimes be hard to come by.

Your support will enable me to provide the "extras" that really help us go the extra mile. Part of our Character Counts curriculum teaches honesty. When testing, some students need extra support in understanding what that means in relation to testing and doing our personal best. Privacy screens will support honesty and responsibility among students. Thank you!
