"The secret of victory is the organization of the non-obvious," stated the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. The secret of victory for my students is colored paper.
"My school is a low-income school in Illinois.
Teaching for 22 years has definitely given me insight into the potential of students when given the opportunity and resources to learn. This year I am excited about teaching 5th and 6th grade students. During the course of the school year, students often misplace their assignments. I have watched numerous students become frustrated when they know they have completed an assignment and yet cannot find it. Often, these assignments are in their desk, a folder or backpack amidst all their other papers.
My students need colored paper to help with organization: salmon, lilac, canary, and goldenrod. According to recent brain research, using colored paper helps students perform better and can even relieve stress. Using colored paper will help students easily locate assignments. Each content area, or subject, will have a designated color. For example, reading assignments will be copied on green paper, vocabulary on blue, etc.
With your donation, my students can reach their full potential.
The resource of colored paper will not only help them to organize but is the secret to making them victorious this school year. Help them coordinate with color and enhance their ability to learn.
