As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty Title I school, my class supplies are often limited. If I want specific items, I often purchase them myself such as extra pencils, markers, crayons, tablets, special craft projects and basic everyday supplies. Despite these challenges, I provide my students an engaging environment where they thrive and learn.
My kindergarten students are diverse learners.
Some of my students have individual education plans, some are English-only speakers, and others are English language learners. Since my students are so diverse, I teach both in whole group and in centers throughout the day to provide each group of students the instruction they require.
I'm requesting a class set of durable, plastic folders for my students' classwork and homework. I've used these heavy-duty plastic folders in the past and they last all year long, even with those students who have trouble taking care of their supplies.
I use these two folder colors for two different reasons: classwork and homework.
Their classwork folder stays in their desk all year. I pull their work every Friday and send it home on Monday. This gives them a way to organize their work in their desk and it's easy for me to pull their weekly work. The homework folder gets sent back and forth once a week. It's a great way to stay organized and send correspondence home to the parents. I can't rave about these folders enough! They truly last all school year.
I'm also asking for twistable crayons for our spring semester. My kinder students are usually ready to use skinnier crayons and these twistable ones work great.
