I teach at a Title I charter school in Hesperia, CA. Classes are small at my school to help ensure that students are the priority, with my biggest class of only 25 students. My students come from all over the High Dessert to go to school, some even traveling 30 minutes to get their education. Parents know that at my school their children do better when they are put first in a small class. With 25 students in a class, the teachers can make sure that every student is helped however they need to be.
75% of my students come from low income houses, which makes it difficult for their families to provide extra things like extra school supplies.
These supplies will help students do more art projects in my Science classroom. With the new NGSS standards, I have my students show me with projects of what they learned. With the new way of how I am teaching, the students need more supplies to facilitate this way of learning and assessing.
For example, this year my 7th grade classes made a diorama to show how natural resources are harvested.
It would have made things better to have paint and colored pencils to make the projects even better.
Another example, is that my 6th grade classes made baby dragons to show how genetics are shown in other animals. This project would have been better if they had glue to glue their dragons together instead of taping.
