My second grade class consists of students from many different races. The school is located in a low socioeconomic district and most of my students qualify for free lunch. My class consists of African American, white, and Hispanic students. Although there appears to many differences among them, we have created a classroom environment where we are fair and respectful of each other. They are eager to learn and just need the resources to push them even further. The sky is the limit.
This project will provide my students with some of the basic necessities of a classroom. One item requested is headphones for the computers. We use a math program on the computer to enrich our math lessons but the students are not able to fully enjoy the technology activities because they are not able to hear the sounds. Most of the students can not afford to replenish school supplies so this will help with basics such as pencils, and markers and allow them all to have their own set for arts and crafts that we complete. This project will also provide the opportunity for them to enjoy flexible seating instead of being stuck in regular chairs all day. This project will also provide increase the activities I am able to provide for my students with the use of pocket charts, chart paper, and sentence strips. During writing lessons we do a lot of whole group writing and the lined paper and sentence strips will allow me to model for the students correct paragraph structure and handwriting. The laminator will allow me to be able to have activities in our math and ela stations that will last for the entire school year.
