Mrs.Christi and Mrs.Thompson have a very diverse group of kindergartners in our small town school. Our students are five to six years old and range in capabilities. We have a student that can read on a sixth grade level and some that have special needs. As diverse as they may be in the educational needs, they all share a desire and love to learn.
One common thread between them is that we do not live in a community with a lot of money.
Many have lost their jobs either in the coal mines or the steel mill. As a result of the coal mines and steel mills shutting down, our school system has also lost a lot funding. As educators, we spend a lot of money out of our own pockets to meet most of our classroom needs. Even though its been rough in our community, in our classroom, we are one big upbeat, happy, positive learning family in our kindergarten room. In this room, the students and learning always comes first.
Our classroom always needs color ink cartridges for printing. We have so many lessons that are made easier for our students just by adding a touch of color.
A great example of using color in a lesson would be math.
If we have the greater number in green and the lesser number in red, students automatically understand this concept. Also, adding color to plus or minus problems help them pay attention to which math sign they should be using.
We also use color in reading lessons by using color for your sight words in sentences. It just really drives home the repetition of a sight word when they're constantly seeing it and it's easily recognizable. It's an excellent way to separate vowels and consonants. I know ink for the printing is boring, but it's so necessary for our room. As you can see it really helps the students in a myriad of ways. Thank you in advance for your donation.
