I have the privilege of teaching music to elementary students. Coming from teaching in a regular classroom for 13 years, I will need to change up things. I teach at a Title I school in a high diversity neighborhood where over 90% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. We try to give our students every advantage that we possibly can.
My students are inquisitive and ready to learn.
I know that with assistance, we can have a great school year.
I am helping our students learn about reference materials and need some materials to achieve this. We are looking for some nonfiction magazines to use for picture clues, headings, and other identifiable areas of reference. I am also asking for some dictionaries to help them understand how dictionaries work.
Looking to improve the education of low income families that may otherwise not have this opportunity.
With your help we can get the reference materials into the hands of students that have only seen how to use them online, unfortunately the state test require them to understand the print version. I cannot wait to help these students learn more about print versions of reference materials.
