School Supplies

My students need dry-erase markers to be engaged learners; magazine bins to organize reading groups; and leveled books to have options at their reading levels.

My Students

Were you actively engaged in your learning as a child? Did you have to think before you answered? Well, my students have the opportunity to process thoughts, write their answers on a white-board, and share their responses. However, we've run out of ink and need your help!

My students and I are a part of a small school district in an urban California city.

They are impoverished, underprivileged, minority students. 96% of my students qualify for free/reduced lunch. They are challenged: economically and educationally. They were at a disadvantage last year and I challenge their minds. They are eager to learn and show a high interest in Science and Social Science.

My Project

I use white-boards for EVERY subject as a quick, informal assessment and as a means to allow my scholars to think, process, and answer a question before sharing. They love having the ability to actively participate in their education; they love the opportunities I provide them to process, write, and share their responses on their white-boards BEFORE they respond. They are not only actively engaged, but invested in their education, too. I have collected a vast amount of books and have a great library. However, I don't have many books at their level (I used to teach upper grade). Having books at their level would help read and comprehend better. Having books at their level would allow for them to feel successful at having read a book with the ability to comprehend. TIME for KIDS would help my students get more NONFICTION text in their daily learning and expose them to a world they may not encounter otherwise.

I try my best to provide my scholars with the basic necessities: highlighters pencils, notebooks, pens, books and other supplies needed throughout the year.

My pocketbook cannot supply all their needs and my heart breaks knowing that their parents cannot afford to supply their scholar with other needs such as: dry-erase markers, books, and bins that would help my students and I stay organized. Please help us stay engaged and organized.
