We focus so much on college readiness that sometimes we lose sight of just day-to-day readiness! Nearly all of my students are in low-income/high poverty situations and school supplies and other necessary materials are difficult for their families to come by, and unfortunately, are not provided by the school either due to budgetary cuts. I want my students to have a fighting chance towards being successful, and getting them the materials they need to perform their very important jobs as students, is crucial! Pencils will give the students tools for writing in their notebooks from notes to reflection to exploring creative or out of the box thinking, and for practicing what they learn in school in the classroom and at home. Basic classroom supplies such as kleenex, sanitizer and disinfecting wipes will help to keep our students to practice good classroom hygiene and helping one another stay healthy. My students will greatly benefit having a pair of headphones to use to lessen the distraction from their activity and the activities of others, and a plug in computer mouse to make testing and other activities easier to navigate. Lastly, we are working hard to integrate the arts into all of our core subjects because research has shown it is a most wonderful and effective strategy for helping students learn. Having even just basic art and project supplies (crayons, markers, paper, scissors, glue) and places to store materials and projects (storage carts and organization cubicles) , in addition to the every day needed supplies will help my students feel at ease and give them less to stress an worry about and therefore less energy and effort they're spending away from learning and growing their brilliant minds.
