What makes my students special is their drive to learn! This year I have students who are in their first year of full English instruction. It's exciting to see their determination to learn in a language that is relatively new for them in terms of academics.
My students are from the first or second Mexican American generation, and they live in a 95% minority neighborhood.
Ninety-five percent of these students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. Our school is 95% low income and is located in the heart of a community that is changing drastically. The majority of our teachers are extremely hardworking and work extended hours in order for us to provide the best education to our students!
Having a place for students to store their journals, center materials and books are essential to learning! Our classroom desks don't have enough space to store all of their materials. A storage unit like the one I selected would allow for students to keep their journals in an organize compartment and easy to find when needed. Students can also store their binders and group work.
Keeping it organized allows for minimum distraction in digging into their cramped desks to find materials.
Students tend to lose their work, journals or keep them very messy due to lack of space. As part of learning we teach students to be responsible and organized. This unit will allow for students to have a system of organization and way to easily go obtain their materials with cleared marked labels for each tray. I assure you this will contribute to students NOT wasting time in finding what they need! Help me make this possible for my little second graders..
