I have a classroom of twenty-seven fifth-grade students who love to learn new things. Over 27% of my students have learning and/or behavioral disabilities. I need to keep their attention by varying the activities in and out of the classroom. Our small southern Indiana school is a school-wide Title I facility in which funds are limited. Close to 350 students attend our elementary school. We have eighteen classrooms of children. 72% of our students received free and reduced breakfast, lunch, and book fees. Our school works hard to offer many additional after-school opportunities for our K-5 students like Green Thumbs, Running Club, and Drama Club.
Although I teach fifth grade, making class projects that cover state standards fun is a must-do! Leaf Collection Portfolios, States and Historical Character posters, weekly stations, bulletin boards, etc. will look fantastic with the use of the Cricut Explore 2 Air, its supplies, and tools. We also need fabric markers for an upcoming project.
With twenty-seven students in our classroom, we are in need of space.
We want to organize our room with new shelves and different sized storage containers. Constructing the shelves will teach the children many skills. Students are more organized when they are able to find school items in a quick way.
