My Students

Every morning as I walk onto the blacktop to pick up my second graders, I am greeted with hugs and "I missed you,” even if I saw them yesterday. They come to school with smiles on their faces the majority of days, and some days, their home lives show on their faces. I want to ensure that they have the best educational experience I can give them during their time with me.

My students are joyful, curious, and their hardships do not define them.

I work in a Title I school in California where 97% of the students receive free breakfast, lunch, and backpacks full of food to take home over the weekend. My students still come to school ready to learn and take on the world!

My Project

With the school year coming to close, it is time to start thinking about the new year. One item my classroom needs all the time is dry erase markers, specifically the fine point Expo Dry Erase Markers.

Dry erase markers have so many uses in the classroom that we use them practically the whole day.

But with using them the whole day, we go through them fairly often. We use them during our phonics instruction to sort words, practice our High Frequency words, and practice our spelling. We use the markers during our reading of our literature anthology. My students write their responses to text dependent questions on their whiteboards with the markers. In math, we use them to solve word problems and practice our math facts. We even use the markers on our desks to solve problems to increase engagement. The markers may seem like a basic supply, but they are so useful and that is the best kind of supply. Thank you for your consideration in donating to my project.
