Protecting and Preserving Our Skills

Help me give my students a laminator and pouches so that they can preserve their task cards so they may practice their skills.

My Students

Our school is a STEM school that provides many advantages for our students. We serve students in grades K-5 and provide rigorous academics, fantastic teachers and a safe learning environment. As a result, we are consistently one of the top-performing schools in the state every year. Our goal is to prepare our students for success in high school and college. Our district has a 100% college acceptance rate! My goal is that my students will be part of that 100%!

My Kinder through fifth graders are comprised of 60 amazing, funny, and hardworking students, all who come from bilingual households.

They navigate through life with experiences from two or more different cultures which makes them that much more interesting to work with. Their families are pursuing the "American Dream" and I am grateful to be able to play a part in that dream by educating my students.

My Project

The role of education is to prepare students to become active, successful, and contributing members of society. My students are 21 century learners who are eager to learn! We are in a beautiful new school but still need some resources.

My students use task cards for Reading to enhance their learning experience and can work on them no matter where we go.

But, we need to be able to get a lot of use from the cards. So, laminating the task cards will help us to reuse them for stations, independent work, and as travel resources when we move around. The students also use the task cards as games, competing with each other while reinforcing skills.
