As a Title I teacher, in a high poverty school, it is imperative that these students from low income households are given a solid foundation for learning. My students come from diverse backgrounds and many lack the stability and support at home necessary to succeed.
My students are eager to learn, but they need the resources and support to go that extra step.
Many of our families lack the ability to provide for the daily supplies. Our school-wide clothing closet is used on a regular basis. Food is sent home with students for the weekend. We have many Puerto Rican refugees from Hurricane Maria who are unfamiliar with our culture and do not speak English.
My students are in need of many classroom basics, including construction paper and a small white board for use in with students in small group reading and math instruction. The privacy partitions will help them stay focused during tests. The small clocks will be used in our upcoming time instruction.
The phonics flip books will be utilized by my students from Puerto Rico to create a fun way to learn and practice English.
They are excited to learn and are quickly adapting to their new environment and learning our language.
My students love reading the inspiring stories of the Who Was book series and the history of the I Survived series. Students who are interested, and excited to read in third grade will become lifelong readers.
