We are a Title I school and most of our students receive free or reduced lunch. The school district is located in a low socioeconomic neighborhood made up of many different cultural communities with the majority of students speaking Spanish as their primary language. Overcrowded classrooms have become the norm, with over thirty students in each class. Still, students remain positive, happy, and eager to learn!
Having taught here for about fifteen years, I see the students craving more hands-on authentic experiences they might not have access to in their home lives.
My particular group of students this year is a fun and curious bunch. They are constantly asking questions and are always seeking new topics to discuss in the classroom.
With the right learning tools, I am confident we can help these young innovators achieve great things that extend far beyond the classroom!
In a classroom of thirty students, you notice how cramped and warm things can get which shifts the focus away from learning and educational activities. Three simple tools would help create a fresh environment to help us breath easier.
The Levoit Air Purifier will provide that much needed clean air in our old crowded classroom.
The Master of Mindfulness: How to Be Your Own Superhero in Times of Stress book will teach us to be present in the moment and appreciate what we have. The Swingline three-hole punch will be a tool to create books and stories in our refreshing environment.
Simply put, our classroom needs a breath of fresh air! These materials will set the stage for a great school year. Hopefully, students will be able to refocus their energy and set goals beyond the four walls of the classroom.
