My Students

The school is located in an urban community, with a high rate of poverty. We have up to 30 students in every classroom each year. My goal is that the students become a community of learners and help each other grow. I try to teach my students through many different learning styles. We use hands-on tools, technology, books, videos, and more. We work in partners and small groups regularly, and students really work together to help each other be successful.

My students come from a variety of home situations, so they are learning academic and social skills in all subjects.

When my students go home, they do not all get the same academic support. This makes it extremely important to do anything I can during the school day to help them foster the love of learning.

My Project

I am requesting basic supplies such as highlighters, tape, index cards, and hooks.

These are supplies we use regularly, and we are running low.

The highlighters are used to track progress. Our current stock of highlighters has dried out. The tape is used for everyday mending of ripped paper, etc.

The pink and blue index cards and paper will be used specifically for various math groups. The goal is that all of the tools for first grade will be made in blue. All of the tools for second grade will be made in red/pink. This will allow for better organization between groups, easier access to appropriate tools, etc.

The hooks are used to hang charts/posters, lights, and jackets. Students often come to my room with a sweatshirt or jacket and when they are warm, they have a spot to hang their coat so they can continue learning.

I work with the lowest-performing students in reading and math, so these tools are simple...but they are helpful to create smooth routines and success.
