My Students

My students are vibrant and inquisitive students. My students like to explore reading, writing, math and science. A lot of my students come to class without the basic school supplies such as pencils, crayons, and paper. My class is a group of vibrant diverse learners who love to learn, but without the correct supplies this makes it difficult.

My class uses notebook paper and pencils to do class assignments such as bell ringers, spelling, math problems, and of course reading and writing assignments.

Without a consistent supply of these materials, it makes it difficult for the students to complete their class and homework assignments.

My Project

These supplies will make a difference in my student's lives by giving them the supplies needed so that they can complete their class and homework assignments.

A lot of times my students can not do their homework assignments because they do not have the proper supplies at home.

I would like to make bags of supplies so that they will have the supplies needed to complete their assignments. These supplies will also be used while in class to help me to do hands-on activities with the construction paper and crayons. I will be able to to create authentic work samples for display.
