My students are a group of diverse middle school science 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. We are at a Title I school. Most of my students come from a low socioeconomic background. I strive to have my classroom accessible and equitable, but that becomes a challenge when resources are limited.
My students are current and future scientists who are excited to learn about the world around them through curiosity, observation, data collection, and application.
My students are all eager to learn and make self-discoveries in science. They come to school knowing that it's a safe place where they can create meaningful connections with their peers and teachers. They come with little to no background knowledge of the science content, but they are willing and strive to soak up all the knowledge that is presented to them. My students are wonderful young men and women who are ready to take on the world.
My students need pencils in order to produce work to show their mastery. Not having a pencil hinders their learning and I would like to be able to remove that hindrance till the end of the school year. I have about 180 students. We use a voice enhancer in order for all students to hear the content. However, the voice enhancer uses batteries and I have noticed that we go through them very quickly. By having the rechargeable batteries we are saving money and the environment, which is a great teaching opportunity for my science class. In science, we use glue for students' interactive notebooks. But I am noticing that the pages don't stick as well as tape. I am trying to order enough for my students and to replace the rolls whenever they run out.
My class size ranged from 35-40 students and having these materials will streamline and support my students' learning.
