My Students

The positive impact the donation will have on my students would be mind-blowing. They would be very happy to know that people care about them enough to get us classroom supplies. Our school doesn't have a library. I believe they would be very happy to be able to sit in there reading center. The reading corner/ center for Scholars to unwine and read a good book. So the supplies on my list are a great way for me to start a reading/library center in my classroom. What I love most about my students they are very thankful and greatful. They are a great bunch of students who love to learn and enjoy learning. In the spring time we plant flowers to beautify our school, this is something that they love doing as a class together. My students enjoy reading so much that dont have to prompt them to do so, they get right to it. It would be a great start for the students this year, to see a library with books, pillows and other items that they can use for literacy in a

My Project

This project would be a great way to start a reading center in our classroom. Our school doesn't have a library. We are located in inner-city neighborhood. Which as it own challenges within a self. So the supplies on my list are a great way for me to start and add to a finishing touch to our classroom library. Each year I struggle at the beginning of the year and in the middle of the school year to have supplies for students. What I love most about my students they are very thankful and greatful. They are a great bunch of students who love to learn and enjoy reading every chance they get within the classroom they are reading and i would like the space in my classroom to be inviting for them. Each year I spent hundreds of dollars on school supplies including but not limited to books, pencils, crayons, markers, and the list goes on. It would be a great start for the students this year, to see a library with books, pillows and other items that they can use for literacy in a classroom.
