School Supply Challenge

My students need supplies to be successful in school throughout the year. We need pencils, ink cartridges, pens, post-it notes, glue sticks, and binders.

My Students

The students in my classroom live in an urban, low-income city. They have limited resources and often survival comes before learning. These students need the motivation to further their academic careers and succeed beyond school.

My students all qualify for free or reduced-price lunch under Title I.

The students in my school are very hard working, yet have limited basic skills. To help them grow in math, they need to connect concepts to the real world. While they have limited experiences such as travel, they are desperate to see what life is like outside of their city.

My Project

My students need quality school supplies to produce high quality work in the math classroom. Students will use the pencils, colored pencils, colored pens and glue sticks to work on projects and activities in the classroom. They will use the ink to print work completed on the computer. Finally, they will use the binders to hold all of their homework, classwork, notes and assessments in one place in an organized manner.

Many of my students struggle to afford basic school supplies.

This project will provide students with quality materials to use in the classroom. This will alleviate a lot of stress that students may feel having to provide their own materials. Students will also take pride and ownership in the materials as they will be used throughout the year in math class.
