My upcoming class will have a variety of needs and I want to provide them with all the options I can to make their 4th grade year the best it can be!
My students are eager to learn and try new things, but they have the odds stacked against them.
I have general education students, special education students, as well as students learning the English Language in my classroom. I am a fourth-grade teacher, in a low-income urban area, in New Jersey, and more than 90% of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
I am privileged to be at the same school for over 20 years. Our school is in an urban area. Many of my students face daily challenges including limited support at home by parents, trauma, and poverty. Despite these challenges, the climate of my classroom is nurturing and sets high expectations for all students.
My students are blossoming into great students this year. They are so engaged this year, and their supplies are almost gone.
Grab the scissors, grab a dry erase marker, go sharpen your pencil; that's right, we are running out of supplies.
You're generous donations will help my students replenish the basic classroom supplies that are needed. We need scissors, dry erase markers, dry erase board cleaner, pencil grips, an electronic pencil sharpener, pens, thumb tacks, ziploc bags for centers, and tissues.
My students can barely afford what is on their school supply list in September, so asking for new supplies again is going to be a financial hardship for many families.
