As an urban school teacher with a large population of English Language Learners and eighty-two percent of students living in poverty, we are faced with a variety of challenges daily. Most concerning, is the number of students who have experienced horrific trauma in their young lives. While I am unable to change their home environment, I take great pride in providing my first graders with a positive and safe school experience. I am very fortunate to teach in a school where expectations for children and staff are high.
Students at our school and in my classroom rise to meet our high standards, both academically and behaviorally.
They are active, eager, and engaged. Our students are spirited scholars working hard to overcome their challenges and grow to be the best that they can be.
A class set of sturdy bags will allow our students easy access to the tools and manipulatives they use each day for mathematics. Transitions will be more efficient as mathematicians can quickly gather their materials for small group instruction and math games. Students will keep math workbooks, journals, whiteboards, writing instruments, magnetic ten frames with counters, number bond templates, and base ten blocks in their new bags.
Your generous donation will help our students to organize their math materials allowing them to focus on the important work of mathematicians.
This extra storage is essential to our well-organized classroom. Thank you for your support with this project.
