I teach students come from high poverty area. A great percentage of the students in my school receive free breakfast and lunch. The students don't have much at home so when they come to school I want to give them the best educational experience possible. They always come to school ready to learn and are capable of so much! Coming to school should be enjoyable to them, since their home lives might not be the best. They deserve it!
Working in a low-income, high poverty school our children are faced with challenges and problems daily both at home and at school.
Although they have seen and heard things before they are 7 years old that most people wouldn't experience until adulthood, nothing is better than seeing a kid be a kid. In my classroom, I like to promote a safe and fun learning environment. I need my children to feel like they can trust me and appreciate me as much as I appreciate them.
Most of my class has learned what I have been teaching since the beginning of the year. Some are ready to move on, while others still need to practice and a few that need reteaching of skills. These resources will help me fill this need of reaching all students where they are.
Providing opportunities for them to engage with the learning using visuals and simple activities will allow even the struggling learners to blossom.
The Visualize It! Part-Whole Addition and Subtraction Cards and Touch & Read CVC Words Match cards will give them time to repeat the skills resulting in mastery.
Help me close the gaps and strengthen the knowledge with some great learning tools!
