My Students

Hi y'all! I teach a diverse, enthusiastic, kind, eager learners in a 2nd grade class. We are currently in need of some basic school supplies to help us get started this school year!

We are a group of 22 kind, caring, eager (sometimes chatty) students who are eager to come to school every day and I am lucky enough to be their teacher

We are a kind, caring, respectful class who needs some help getting us started this school year!

My Project

These supplies will help our classroom start a wonderful 2nd grade year!

By donating to this project you will help keep the children organized, foster their learning and create their best work

With these school supplies the children will be able to stay organized, and start the year off with brand new supplies. Unfortunately we lack the most basic school supplies. We will use these supplies to help us get started on our sure to be fabulous 2nd grade school year!

We will also use our new storage to keep ourselves organized. The pencils, folders, markers, and other supplies of the sort will be used by the students, so that they may do their best work. The organizational baskets, will be placed on the shelves in the back of our classroom and will help the our daily schedule run smoothly from day to day.

Every day we use pencils, highlighters, markers, expo markers to keep the children engaged with fun learning activities. We will use the magnets, pocket charts to hang up and model our fabulous work in the classroom!
