My Students

My classroom is full of highly energetic and excited children. They are working hard on becoming better readers, writers, and mathematicians. They are trying to reach this goal through many activities; whole groups, small groups, working with partners, and independently. My students live in a low income, urban community, where resources and positive experiences are limited to them at home.

My goal is for all my children to have the materials they need to be successful and focused on learning.

That sometimes means even the basic classroom supplies to make their learning stress free.

These materials will ensure that my students have all the basics they need every day. With these supplies on hand my students can focus on learning and not be worried about not having the simple basics to continue their learning. Let's help them be successful!

My Project

For my first-grade students to be successful and engaged in learning, they first need to have supplies. Basic supplies can be expensive for some parents and especially for teachers.

I want to help my students start the new year this January with a replenishment of the basics they need.

We have already worked hard and used almost all our pencils and glue sticks. I am asking for pencils, glue sticks, crayons, notebooks, scissors, and pencil bags to help my students in our daily activities. In first grade we use all these supplies daily and they take a beating. My first graders love to participate in activities that require cutting, gluing, and coloring.

Please help us continue to grow as learners with these basic supplies.
