My Students

Do you remember all the bright colors that energized your childhood? From the colorful toys to coloring books, color stimulated our imagination and make everything more fun and exciting. My students enjoy writing stories that bring characters to life, but illustrating their stories just makes the story complete!

Everyday my students come ready to to discover something new.

Their minds are sharp and their creativity is clear, but as a Title I school, we have a lot of low-income students. We are happy to receive them as the wonderful children they are, but a lot of the time, we are left without the extra supplies we definitely need to take our projects to the next level.

My Project

These supplies will help maintain our colorful classroom. We enjoy creating and posting classroom posters and anchor charts together. These charts promote community and are great learning aids to reinforce what we are learning and remind us of what we have previously learned.

My students enjoy writing and create wonderful imaginative stories that they illustrate with crafts and sketches.

Colorful paper will take our work to the next level. It will provide a background for writing, illustrations and crafts that will be display for all to see and enjoy.

Not only will colorful index cards display words, definitions, and flash cards, they will provide a canvas for student comic strip story boards and so much more!

The possibilities for use of these supplies are as endless as the rainbow, and will bring as much enjoyment.
