My Students

My students are energetic but truly understand class policy and the importance of learning. Once they walk into the classroom, they go to their seats quickly, immediately get the class-related materials such as pencils, composition books, and workbooks out from a designated area in the classroom. Few students will help me to pass out the textbooks and other lesson materials to the whole class; then, the majority of students will ask me the question, “What are we going to learn today?”

My Project

I am requesting different stationery for my students.

A set of stationery can most likely increase learning efficiency.

Students will learn different subjects such as English reading and writing; Math and art during every school day in a fast-paced classroom. Therefore, I would like each of my students has his or her own set of stationery in the beginning of the school year; and there are 2 advantages: (1) students can learn maintaining and organizing their own stationery; and (2) they can "grab-and-go" those stationery when I ask them to sit on a rug for learning or participating in various activities.

Those materials will be used in different lessons. Students will write down notes in the notebooks with pencils, erasers, and rulers. They will store the worksheets in the folders whereas stationery in the pencil cases. On the other hand, the glue sticks and color pencils can be used during the art lesson.

Finally, I will use the whiteboard cleaner to clean the board.
