My Students

A typical day in my classroom looks like organized chaos. Students come in the classroom and start the day with a character building activity.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds.

Each day is a challenge and joy at the same time. They are a class of energetic 9 years old eager to learn and have fun at the same time. Coming from a very rural, high poverty area, school is a saving grace for many. We have students who are homeless or on the verge of homelessness. This is a challenge within itself. Most students come to me each day with way more on their minds than school. Often the night before, or the morning before school brings heartache to some. Someone may have been arrested, shot, fighting, etc.. You name it, and most have seen it. I am doing my best to help them overcome these trials and tribulations and become the most successful individual they can.

Many of my students come from a low poverty area. They are in desperate need of supplies.

My Project

All the materials that I am asking for will help my students become better writers. I am asking for pencils, pens , erasers, crayons, markers, etc.; all things writing.

My third graders are learning how to become avid writers.

Third grade is the first year for students to take the MAAP test in Mississippi. Writing is a big part of that test.

Without the materials needed to write with, it makes for frustrated students, who in turn, shut down and shut off.

Writing isn't just for ELA anymore. Students will use these items across the curriculum to improve comprehension and writing skills.
