Sharpen My Pencil Please!

My students need pencils sharpened, a set of workstation task cards, and math/reading tasks.

My Students

"I will not waste this day, for this day will come no more!"

My students are eager individuals who just want to explore, learn and have fun doing it.

My school is 99% African American students who are capable of so much more than they know. All they need is motivation and confidence which we provide for them.

My Project

My students will be super excited to use Common Core task cards that are individualized based on their needs. Students will build their reading and math skills according to the common core standards. In order to do so, we need a functioning pencil sharpener. Please help us!

Your donation to our project helps my students become confident and feel successful in completing tasks based on their needs.

We would appreciated your help in saving and making a difference in our classroom.
