My Students

I currently have sixty enthusiastic fourth grade students who love to learn. They see the good in everything and everybody, and work hard to achieve goals. They want to be the best and they will strive for nothing less. They are eager to please others, including their families and their teacher. All of my students learn differently and are very talented in their own special way. They love to be challenged and have a love for learning that I hope they carry for the rest of their lives. They make me proud to call them my students.

My Project

The materials I am asking for will help my students in many ways. The comprehension hot dot sets will help my students practice reading comprehension skills. I teach a variation of different learners and these could really make a difference for students who struggle comprehending what they read. The flair pens will allow my students to self check their own work as we make corrections to assignments in class. My students love writing with pens. We also do a lot of foldable projects for students to paste into a study notebook. These projects require scissors, and the scissors I have currently are not in the best shape. The scissors will help all of my students be able to complete their foldable projects.
