No Peeking!

My students need test dividers, wipe boards and dry erase markers to assist them in being assessed.

My Students

Isn't peeking tempting? It must be if this caught your attention. Our students love to peek too, but not during a science observation.Our students need privacy during testing and to stop their temptation to peek.

I am in a co-teaching class, with one other teacher and thirty students.

Our kids are full of life, energy, enthusiasm, and love, although, many may face adversity by living in a low income area. Our school is a Title 1 school located in an area that is considered transient. Therefore many of our students have moved a number of times in order for their family to find work and housing. Out of 30 students we have 20+ students who are new to the school and area. Due to the area growing in population our school has exceed the amount of students it was built for and therefore our class is in the old music room which lacks a bathroom and windows. Although our school is only 4 years old we still lack basic supplies.

My Project

Although our school is only 4 years old we still lack basic minor supplies. Between August and January we have spent about $2000 of our own money to purchase supplies, student incentives and organizers, to name a few things. We have requested Privacy Partions,Dry Erase Lap Boards, and Dry Erase Markers. We have requested these items because our students need to feel like they have privacy when taking a test. Due to the size of our classroom and the number of students there is not enough room to create that privacy. Currently, our students are using two manila file folders stapled together to build a sense of privacy when taking a test. Although this seems like a brilliant idea they continuously fall off the desk, bend and rip which creates mayhem during a test. In addition to privacy our students will benefit from being able to have their voices heard when a question is asked during a lesson. Currently, students have to be called on individually in order to answer a question. This means not every student gets the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of a concept. Also, we as teachers are unable to fully assess what each student is grasping, until another day or test time. Dry erase lap boards allow each student to have an opportunity to answer the question asked. It also, gives us a chance to survey the answers in order to understand who may need additional help.

Our students need your help to succeed!

by donating to this project our students will feel a sense of security, by being able to have some privcay during thier test. In addition, our students will be heard, something many of them need, and want!
