This year there has been a shift in our organizational structure where four homeroom classes rotate rooms for specialized curricular instruction. Students are expected to rotate classrooms and bring designated materials to each room in a provided cinch sack. While our model is new, there is one consistent; students lack required materials that are needed to complete classwork.
The majority of students that attend our school come from homes of poverty.
I do not intend on adding the additional stress of asking for school materials. Parents want what is best for their children and I'm positive that there is a reason that these materials weren't initially provided.
Social Studies is not always looked at as the most exciting subject in school so I want to provide opportunities where students aren't just working out of a textbook! Students need a varied task structure to stay engaged in the learning process.
One essential skill for learning social studies is learning geography so I'd love to give my students the opportunity to "color the world" and provide the materials necessary for completing our various map activities in class.
Colored pencils are the ideal choice when completing map activities to ensure that borders and labels are still easily visible after colored.
