My Students

My students mean everything to me. Their drive to always do better amazes me. These materials will give me the opportunity to support the learning in my classroom.

My students come to school each day with a desire to learn.

We lack resources in my school due to budget cuts and funding. We are also a Title I school. Most of our students are economically disadvantaged. This does not stop our students from wanting to learn! They enter the school each day with a smile on their face and excited as to what each day will bring.

My Project

These materials will help with the daily writing we do in our classroom. I have the pleasure of teaching writing and reading to fifty students.

We are trying new techniques this year to make them grow as writers.

The colored pens will be used for them to learn how to break down information in a paragraph. It will be a fantastic visual to use with my lessons! I would also love for them to be able to type and print their writings. This will not be possible without ink for my printer at school. Printing their writings will make them feel more like an author.

I plan to use the hanging organizer to organize their writing materials. I want to have all the resources at their fingertips. Help us bring this project alive.
