Help me give my students headphones, copy paper, pencils, and erasers to keep us going to the end of the school year. We also need comfy floor seats to add to our flexible seating options.

My Students

Many of my students struggle to have their basic needs met at home. Often, many of them do not make it to school on time, eat breakfast, or have had a good night's rest when they start their day. Many of the families do not have enough money to buy the school supplies that were requested for the year, leaving them at a disadvantage compared to their other peers. Being a teacher at a school that is filled with families that are high poverty is often a struggle, since many students are regularly unprepared to learn, both mentally and physically.

My students are different.

Despite what happens at home, they come to school ready and excited to learn. They are able to leave their struggles and insecurities at the door in order to learn. Once they walk in the door, I see nothing but smiles. They are ready to get their hands dirty and fill their brains.

My Project

My students love to choose where they sit in the classroom. They enjoy the freedom they are given over something so simple. Unfortunately, there are not enough "comfy" seats for them to sit on the floor with so I would like to expand their options a little at a time.

Due to all of my student's hard work, we are starting to run low on our basic supplies like blank paper, erasers, and pencils.

We need these things to get through our day to day activities. The blank paper goes a long way. We no only use the paper for copies we also make foldable organizers, draw pictures, and create charts.
