Hooray! This project is fully funded
I work at a Title I school. The majority of my students receive free or reduced-price lunch and come from homes where English is their second language. A considerable percentage of the population is not meeting standards.
Many of my students come to school with little life experiences.
They have not had the opportunity to experience things such as traveling on vacations or even watching a play at the theater. Even though they have daily obstacles to overcome, they come to school eager to learn. Once they enter my classroom, I want them to be assured that they are in a safe learning environment and that anything is possible!
Jeff Duntemann said, "A good tool improves the way you work. A great tool improves the way you think." In our classroom, there are some tools that are constantly being used. After so much use, these items need to be replaced.
This project will bring my students basic tools we use on a daily basis such as a paper trimmer, a hole puncher, and a timer.
The most popular item in the classroom is the timer. We often use it during our cooperative group rotations or just to give students a warning on how much time is left to work on assignments. The paper trimmer is used to trim down charts we glue in to our interactive notebooks. The hole puncher is used after students' writing assignments are done and ready to be placed in their three-ring binder. Having these supplies readily available and in good working condition will make our transitions in class so much easier!
