Can You Help Me Cut Out a Sticky Problem? Scissors and Glue
My students need glue and scissors for various projects throughout the year.
Could you imagine elementary school without glue and scissors? Well, me either! Many students come to school without basic supplies or their supplies end up lost or broken throughout the year. The classroom (back-up) supply has dwindled.
My classroom is filled with average students who embody a variety of needs.
I teach the fifth grade inclusion room, which means most of the students with special needs in all of fifth grade are clustered into my classroom. Our public school is considered impoverished.
We often "create" notes that we cut out and glue into our notebooks. In social studies we complete many cut and paste projects. For example, we cut out shapes of the continents and glue them onto paper. We also create fold books to review concepts, and those often require glue and scissors.
Can you please help me "cut out a sticky problem?" Teaching in an impoverished school can mean that students often come to school without the basic school supplies we use day in and day out in our lessons.
