My Students

Welcome to my 3rd grade classroom! I teach at a Title I school where approximately 85% of the students at our school receive free or reduced-price lunch, and many come from single-parent, low-income households.

My classroom is very culturally diverse, and I have several students in my class who speak English as a second language.

Despite the challenges that my students are faced with, they come to school very eager to learn and willing to try new things. My favorite thing about my class is how my students love, accept, and celebrate each other despite their differences.

My Project

My students need rewards to encourage leader behavior, basic supplies to support their everyday learning needs, and snacks to get them through the day.

These rewards, supplies, and snacks will keep my students encouraged and help ensure that every student has the things they need in order to be successful.

We need basic supplies such as expo markers, dry erase erasers, colored pencils, sketch pads, brown bags, and gel pens to use daily to create interactive notebooks and for use when students are engaged in center and small group activities during math and science. Binding covers will be used to bind class books and writing assignments. In addition to basic supplies, many of my students come to school each day without a snack. It is very hard to function academically and pay attention when you're hungry. The Cheez-Its and fruit snacks will be given to the students without a snack to help fuel their body and help them get through the day without hunger and grumbling stomachs. Blow pops and Airheads will be given out as special rewards for students who demonstrate leadership behavior throughout the week. The fun pads, popcorn trays, oil, and seasonings will be use to celebrate students who maintain leadership behavior for an entire nine weeks.

Please help me help my students by providing my class with these much needed rewards, supplies, and snacks.
