Color Copy Paper Needed

My students need colored copy paper to make vocabulary flash cards.

My Students

My students are anxious for interesting ways to enhance their ELA skills. We have started an interactive notebook which they love. However, they really want some colored paper to make it interesting.

I have 116 teenagers daily.

My students are all 8th grade students between the ages of 13-15. One thing I have learned about this age group is they want to have fun while learning and need as much hands on activities as possible. My students come from an extremely poor and small rural area originally developed for coal mining. Several of my students have never even ventured out of our area. Students are eager to learn, but need interactive ways to keep their engagement.

My Project

The colored copy paper will be used in our interactive notebook. By making copies and flash cards on colored paper students will easily differentiate which lesson we are currently working on, as I will use once color per lesson. One week red, the next blue, etc.. This will not only help with keeping them organized, but also making the notebook more interesting to look at. In the long run, enabling to keep their attention.

Students are eager for anything bright and colorful.

In addition, the colors help keep their attention. Colored paper has also been proved to assist students with different conditions such as Autism, Asperger's, ADD, and ADHD by keeping their attention and aiding in memorization.
