Comfort in Literacy With Reusable Snack/Recess Equipment
Help me give my students indoor recess games in anticipation of the cold weather. We also would like some reusable snack/water containers. Lastly, a book display to showcase titles in all subject areas we're currently learning.
Our classroom this year is made up of a diverse group of students with diverse background experiences and needs. We have four languages in the classroom, which include Arabic, Spanish, Nepali, and English. We have a few students working with Title I interventionists in reading and in math. In addition to our English as a second language learners and intervention students, we also have students with special needs.
This spectrum of abilities has created a collaborative, creative, curious, compassionate, and empathetic classroom community.
We are striving to build one another up socially and academically by choosing kindness and optimism as we work together. This is an engaging group that works best with hands-on and authentic learning experiences.
I've got some serious conservationists this year who would like to have reusable items for snack. They pointed out to me that, each week, we waste between 19 to 95 plastic baggies on our snack. We also waste water by letting the fountain run more than our share. Hence, the snack packaging and water bottles.
In literacy, we emphasize the importance of reading materials that correlate to all subject areas (such as math, science, and social studies).
We would love a book display that the students and I could choose content-related books to fill with.
Finally, some indoor recess games would be nice for the upcoming cold weather. We've experienced some rain recently and had to stay indoors. These games use math and literacy skills we work on in our class.
