My Students

As a teacher in a low-income school district, I feel that my students have to face many undeserving obstacles in their lives. I would love to offer these bright, intelligent, and joyful group of students the best learning environment possible. I want to share some ray of light to make a difference in all of my students' lives.

I am blessed to have such amazing students.

They all just seem to love life, and are hard-working and are just a great bunch of kids.

My Project

I'm requesting Reading & Writing Skills Folder Game Libraries, a Reading Comprehension Games Library, and Daily Reading Comprehension Activities kit.

These resources will help to enhance my classroom.

I teach fifth grade reading and I find it is hard to find activities that the students are interested in. With these games and activity books, I will be able to expand and implement a place that kids have fun while learning. Reading is one of the most important skills students need to succeed in life. Games and activities such as these will prove to be very valuable in expanding their reading and comprehension skills.

I try to find as many fun activities to do with my class so they will develop a love of reading. Please help me to give these students these resources. Thank you.
