My Students

In our classroom, we focus on relationships and building a class family! We do all sorts of activities to grow those positive relationships.

My kiddos love engaging and challenging hands-on activities!

They love stem activities! My kiddos also love to read! I want to have a huge classroom library for all my kiddos to choose books from! I want my kiddos to have a book that they can read any free minute of the day. My kids love to go on adventures through their reading!

Many students in my classroom come in saying they have difficulty completing practice assignments at home because of a ​lack of supplies and resources.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best, vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work and alternative seating and learning options

My Project

All of these materials on our list are basic classroom supplies. Many of my students have few or no supplies at all for the school year. Its been challenging to learn and participate with no supplies.

These supplies will help the students learn and participate in lessons.

I want to be able to give my students a chance to learn the materials needed to learn in fifth grade and excel in the classroom. I want my students to build confidence within themselves and know that they are capable of so much more than they believe. I want my students to believe in themselves!
