Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 504

Dear Sponsor,

 

On behalf of Blanton Elementary, I would like to extend my sincerest thanks for acting as a sponsor for our project, Fun with Books. With your financial support we were able to provide the access to reading materials and some supplemental materials for our students. We purchased the On Cloud 9 Kit and Sounds Partners supplemental materials for multiple grade levels.

 

The idea of this project is to provide the teachers with multiple resource to assist with the On Cloud 9 Kit. The resources will allow them to prep and preplan multiple groups. Teachers will be better able to plan for the core reading as well as small group instruction. Using these resources allows students to be group together appropriately and thus become more engaged in their learning. With increased engagement comes more individual academic success. We know there are different types of learners and many students learn in different ways. As a school community we hope to provide a learning environment that meets the needs of every child, and we believe that more structured and focused instruction will help. Our school is a Title One school and has students from various economic backgrounds. The students at Blanton have home lives that do not give them many choices. While students are at school, we hope to create a comfortable learning environment that students want to come to everyday.

We are truly grateful for your support. It is because of the support from sponsors like you that we can provide the extra care for our students’ academic needs in the classroom!

 

Thank you,

Shannen Paetzold
