My Students

My second graders are voracious readers! They love to read both fiction and nonfiction books. Their favorite characters include Pete the Cat, Fly Guy, Piggie and Elephant, and Mercy Watson. They also love to read about insects, space, and plants. My students are hungry bookworms! They are eager to learn and read about the world around them.

My students love to be at school and are like little sponges, absorbing everything around them.

Their parents work long hours and usually do not see their children. The children are usually cared for by their grandparents or a family friend. Most of them do not have someone who speaks English at home. Thus, it is difficult for students to acquire the English language.

Due to financial hardships, my students do not have the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities during the school year or summer.

My Project

I would love to start the school year off in September with all the basic supplies my second graders will need. However, due to school budgets cuts and financial hardships for families, it has become difficult for students to have all the materials they need for a successful school year.

Second graders will need basic classroom supplies such as erasers, pens, markers, Ziploc baggies, packaging tape, and student prizes for a busy school year!

My students will go through an enormous amount of erasers, pens, and markers during reading, writing, and math workshops in the classroom and at home. To motivate students, they will also have the opportunity to earn an assortment of prizes such as stickers, race cars, wrist bands, stuffed animals, and stamps for their effort throughout the school day. The sheet protectors will help students organize their work in their folders.

Your donation to this project will provide my students with the supplies they will need for the school year. Your support will ease the burden that many families face when purchasing school supplies.
