My Students

I teach a group of twenty-six first grade students in one of the cities with the highest crime rate in the nation. All the ​students at my school site receive free lunch. A full 97% of my school's student population is Hispanic, and most of them are first-generation in the United States. At least 15% of my students are newcomers to the country. School is one of the only places at which my students interact with someone who speaks academic English.

Living and attending school in a highly impoverished, urban setting, my students are not exposed to many educational experiences outside of the classroom.

Exposing my students to different types of learning while keeping them engaged and entertained is very important to me.

My Project

The supplies I am in need of are very basic items. I am asking for a few notebooks. I found that writing on notebooks is necessary for me to place the notebook right in front of the screen and that way students are able to see it more clearly. I am also asking for markers and a pen. The clips are to be used to hold posters that we review often. I am also asking for sticky notes and staples. The coding labels are to be used for labeling books and behavior cards.

I hope you can help me with this project, given that this will make my distance learning lessons more engaging and higher quality.
