A Cut (and Paste) Above the Rest--Organizing to Learn!

My students need an electric hole punch and stapler, a paper cutter, ink, and glue dots, so that they can print and organize their work into notebooks and binders.

My Students

Bright and colorful graphic organizers and visual aids are important resources for my students to use as they independently work to apply their learning in all subjects. We need some tools to reduce the amount of time it takes to prepare and add these resources to our journals and binders!

My fourth-grade students live in an urban, low-income city comprised largely of immigrant families.

Many of my students speak a language other than English at home. Despite the challenges that they face, the students in my school are consistently eager to learn and enthusiastic about new and exciting learning opportunities. The students in my classroom represent a range of abilities and learning styles. No matter what types of learners they are, all of my students tend to benefit from concrete visuals and clear examples of the skills and concepts that they are learning--especially as they move towards independently applying these skills and concepts to further their learning!

My Project

Graphic organizers, visual aids, and reference sheets are easily differentiated for each student to best meet their individual learning goals and needs. For example, in math, a group of students needs a different type of graphic organizer or example of a problem. Or, during literacy, a small group of students might need a color-coded diagram of a sentence or paragraph as they work on structure. Each student keeps these visuals and examples organized into journals or binders for each subject. Organization is an important skill that all of my students need to work on, as they learn how to keep their resources neat and orderly, so that they can easily refer back to these "reference materials" that they compile throughout the year. My students refer back to their journals as they work independently to apply and transfer their learning to new situations and learning tasks. When a question arises about how to do something, students can figure it out on their own with their resources.

The ink requested will allow my students to print visual aids, graphic organizers, and their own work to add to their journals and binders.

The electric hole punch, electric stapler, paper cutter, and glue dots will greatly reduce the time it takes to prepare and organize materials. When my students have the resources, notes, and visuals that they need in front of them, they will be prepared to independently solve problems, follow research procedures, identify text features, and more!
