Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

My students this year are very eager to learn. They are very curious and are interested in researching new things.

I work at an elementary school that has a fifty-four percent rate of students that participate in Medicaid, SNAP or TANF; homeless, foster, or migrant students.

I currently have twenty-two students that I am trying to build the strongest foundation possible for. I have a variety of students who come from different backgrounds. Hispanic, Caucasian, African American and Puerto Rican are just a few of my students' diverse backgrounds. My students come to school with an amazing attitude and excited to learn. At times, my students spend their free time asking questions about different things I have taught them. Their eagerness to learn is what drives me to create projects that I know will help them be successful.

My Project

The materials and supplies that I am requesting for my students already have a "home." In other words, I know exactly where everything will go. We just need your help in getting everything through our door! I am requesting alphabet tubs and magic letter tracers for my students to use during our Response to Intervention time in the classroom. I think the best way for students to learn is through seeing it. With these alphabet tubs, my RTI students will be able to see and touch these objects to correctly place them in their tub. The magic alphabet boards will help motivate my students to practice forming their letters correctly.

My students are more engaged when they have manipulatives that they can explore and use.

Another resource I have requested for our classroom is a document camera. In my classroom, each student gets a "building skills" booklet during calendar time. We work as a class to complete these. My goal is for it to eventually be student led. The document camera would sit at the front of the classroom and the student of the day would be able to put their work under the document camera. They would be able to lead the class during calendar time.

There is no doubt that these resources will be put to great use in our classroom.
