My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. My students are all different types of learners and have various backgrounds. I have students who do not speak English, students with disabilities, and some students who are homeless.
I teach at a Title I school in the Bronx, New York where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.
Many of my students receive food and clothing from the school's charity drives. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.
My students need chart paper so that they can have visuals that will aid their learning in math and science. Recently my Smartboard stopped working and the students lost access to a lot of information that I always had displayed for them.
Recently, my school lost funding and cannot afford to fix my Smartboard, therefore, this chart paper is crucial to creating anchor charts to display around the classroom.
The anchor charts will have strategies and skills I've taught the students, that they can reference during their independent work. Then chart paper will also allow the students to show their work on the board and then it can be hung up. There is no Smartboard, no blackboard and only a very small white board. The chart paper is critical to having more space to share work and ideas.
