We Still Want to Write About Healthy Eating

My Students

Do you remember learning which foods are healthy? Do you remember learning how about exercise? My students are just learning about what foods and exercise are good for them.

I teach 22 first graders in a high crime and high poverty school in Pennsylvania.

All of the students at my school receive free breakfast and free lunch. Many of my students read below grade level. Many of them come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I am requesting paper and ink for my first grade class. I would like for my students to keep a journal about what foods and exercise are good for them. The students are going to write these journals on our classroom computers. I am hoping that they will be able to print these reports on our classroom printer. In order to print these reports about healthy eating and exercise we need paper and ink.

I am hoping that we will get paper and ink for our classroom printer.

I would like to be able to print my students' journals about nutritious foods and exercise. I would also like to make a booklet for each of my students based on their journals.
