We Care About Our Personal Care!

My students need basic supplies and personal care items such as pencils, deodorant, chap-stick, and snacks to ensure they are prepared for a day full of learning within our classroom walls.

My Students

My fifth grade inclusion classroom is made up of diverse learners from a small town in Western MA. My students are working hard to better themselves each day so that they can gain the skills necessary to be productive members of society and overcome the challenges that many encounter in our high poverty community.

Together, we take pride in our accomplishments and grow immensely as thinkers, readers, and writers over our year in fifth grade.

We love our time together!

My Project

It is important that students have their basic needs met before we ask them to take on the academic challenges we deliver each day. My students would greatly benefit from having a supply area in class that they can visit whenever they run out of essentials at home such as deodorant or toothpaste. Additionally, many students don't come from home with snacks to keep them energized throughout the day. I would like them to be able to have snacks available in class so they can have something to eat alongside their peers who bring in a snack daily. Even having a bulk of pencils accessible so that the students who come to school without any supplies from home don't have to approach a teacher and ask for a new pencil every few days would be great since it would help students feel independent in being prepared for the school day.

If students have their basic needs met and feel well cared for, they can take on the academic demands of their day without worry.

Having a supply area in our room to help with personal care would be a wonderful thing. No student should feel that they have to make do without having their basic needs met. I want my students to feel well cared for and equipped with what they need to succeed.
