My students have such unimaginable potential! They are creative, extremely intuitive and very loving. My school is located in the heart of Third Ward located in Houston, TX. Our school is 98% African-American and is also Title I. They love any project that involves movement, STEM or dancing.
It has been a joy to watch how their brains process information when given to them in various different approaches.
Despite the area they live in and the things they have to go without they absolutely love their classroom and all the learning activities that take place inside of it.
Please help me get some basic necessities for my classroom. Oftentimes my students have to share assignments or copy things into notebook paper because I run out of paper to copy their own individual assignments. Helping them have their own assignments will help students remain focused and give them more materials and supplements to reference to in their journals and portfolios.
Many of the items on this list are purchased out of my own pockets for my classroom.
While I love my students, it is really hard to maintain financing my classroom myself. My young students use and lose pencils daily as writing is imperative in a first-grade classroom. We also make many foldables and crafts and constantly go through glue sticks.
Lastly, I am unable to make colored copies or prints using my campus printer so I mostly print for my students using my own printer and ink in my classroom. My young students have a hard time interpreting things in black and white especially during exams or when learning new content. Printer ink will really help my students grasp a better understanding of the content!
