Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

My students are super excited to be starting off the school year in full force! After almost three years of COVID-19 interruption, we are starting the school year at full capacity!

The folders, a bookcase, a wall calendar, lights, a pocket chart, and other items in this project, coupled with resources we already have, will help my students enhance their reading, writing, and math skills.

We currently have a small reading corner in our class, with the bookshelf and lights, we can amplify it to make it more aesthetically pleasing and encourage excitement in reading. The other items will assist with our daily tasks. Thank you!

Ms. Sampson
Grades 6-8
