My Students

The third graders, given the opportunity, can do anything they set their minds to do. My students are coming from very diverse cultures and are low-income students. However, this doesn't mean they don't have the will to learn new things and surpass all expectations given to them. Our students come from all different backgrounds and are on all different levels when it comes to their academics.

My students love to learn new things, and they put forth their best effort with smiles on their faces.

My Project

With the water bottles I am requesting, my students will create their very own reusable water bottle that they can use in class everyday. Rather than my students leaving the classroom to get water multiple times a day, I would love to have an alternative for them to be able to have their needs met without having to leave the classroom, missing valuable instructional time. The sharpies would allow my students to create their own water bottle making it their own.

Ensuring free access to water and promoting a regular water intake throughout the school day is a vital role for schools in promoting health and providing a healthy learning environment.

The whiteboards that I am requesting would be a great alternative to using paper all the time for quick checks. I would have my students write on the white boards, hold them up for a "Showdown" and be able to do an informal assessment quickly rather than using paper and pencil.

The clipboards would allow my students to be more involved and engaged moving around the classroom. This tends to be a hard thing to do when they don't have something to write on or if they have to share with a partner.
