My students need pocket folders, rulers, a hall pass and a couple of different books to power through the rest of the school year!
"Look, bro! We did it!" These were the words one of my 6th graders exclaimed last year after filling the entire whiteboard with math work. They were so proud of themselves for the hard work they did for the first time that school year. Their classroom had been a revolving door of teachers until I arrived in November. They were "the bad kids whose teachers just couldn't handle them, so they quit." It took a long time for me to convince them this was so far from the truth. My students had no consistency, routine, or discipline for the first three months of school, and these were the qualities they needed most in their lives.
CCC School has some of the most hard-working, resilient students in all of Chester, PA.
We are a Title I school whose entire population of students receives free lunch. These children face more trauma by middle school than most of us endure in an entire lifetime; yet, they come to school every day eager and ready to learn. Their resiliency leaves me in amazement and gives me the strength I need to be the educator I know they need.
To make our intervention block more successful, we need 2 pocket folders. Each student will belong to a different intervention group depending on reading level and subject. These folders will help us organize our work and easily identify growth and movement to different groups as the school year progresses.
We currently don't have nearly enough rulers for each student to work independently during math.
We will do a lot of measuring in our next math unit, so having enough rulers will be essential.
After reading the Boy in the Striped Pajamas, we've become particularly interested in The Holocaust. Students have expressed interest in the I Survived the Nazi Invasion book, as well as sports books.
Lastly, our hall passes need to be replaced. Some are missing. Others just need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. These help us track who's going where when leaving the classroom.
