My students need pencils and erasers as well as a pencil sharpener. They need real world math videos and batteries for their calculators.
Show me what your working with! lol. My students are in a state tested Algebra class. They work endlessly each day. Their school supplies dwindle quickly. These pencils, erasers, and batteries will keep them up and running for the whole year.
My students attend a large school in Mississippi.
We have a high volume of free and reduced lunch students. These kids are well-mannered and deserving of our donations. Our school is one of the best in the area for graduation rate and test scores. There is no doubt that our kids work hard. Mississippi has seen a great deal of turmoil in the past 15 years. That is pretty much the entire lives of the kids I teach. They never complain or show jealousy of other states or schools. I truly teach a wonderful group of kids.
Each year I try to do a project that will reflect what my students need. I ask them what they would like to have to make class better. Each year the request are different. This year they suggested that I request more technology to use in class. The dvd series I've asked for are real world analogies that will show the applications of Algebra in the real world. They also suggested that I have erasers and pencils on hand for when theirs broke. We have also run out of replacement batteries for our calculators. All of these supplies were requested for by my students.
These request were from my students.
I think it is quite mature of them to think about the items that will make a difference in their education. Will class go on without this project? It will. Will the kids complain about not receiving the supplies? They won't. Would your contribution please them and make class run more smoothly? Yes! Thank you for any contribution you can make and thank you for caring about my students as much as I do.
