Hello! I am a second grade teacher who teaches at a Title I school, and my classroom is in need of iPads to cultivate technological literacy. Being that my school's a Title I, the majority of the students that I serve live in poverty. However, regardless of my students' backgrounds and home situations, they do not let anything hold them back. They are energetic, creative, and intuitive!
It is my goal to provide my students with everything they need to be successful inside and outside of the classroom.
My students can do anything, and I will do anything to get them there!
Research has shown that the more engaged students are, the more they are invested in their learning. I am asking for colorful copy paper, crayons, glue sticks, and watercolors to use in our classroom.
Colorful materials will draw my students' attention and keep them engaged so that they can build their love of learning.
I will use the colorful copy paper to print interactive journals and passages that students will use to build vocabulary, math fluency, reading comprehension, and grammar skills. Having these on different colors have been proven to be more effective.
My students use crayons and glue sticks daily to express their thoughts and bring their math and writing to life. Though we ask for them at the beginning of the year, students run through them quickly. Living in a Title I area makes it hard for parents to afford these extras. These crayons will help keep my little ones engaged and expressing themselves.
Each unit we do a directed drawing in order to visualize and practice following directions. Students save all of their directed drawings until the end of the year and take them home in a memory book. I would love to incorporate watercolors to inspire their creativity and enhance their exposure to artistic methods.
