Ms. Dawson from Rochester NY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need folders, composition notebooks, and markers that are durable to engage in interactive notebooking.
As a teacher in an inner city school, I have students that come from extremely diverse backgrounds! My classroom embodies students that face many challenges in and out of school. My goal is to create a space and environment that makes students feel safe, able, worthy, and loved.
My school holds a very large English Language Learner population that creates a classroom with several different needs; academically, emotionally, and culturally.
There are many students in my classroom that are refugees, living in poverty, or being raised in single parent homes. Therefore there are several different challenges that these kiddos face when they enter my room everyday. Although they may walk in our classroom with the weight of the world on their shoulders, my goal is to have them hang that weight up on the hooks with their backpacks and embrace learning.
As their teacher, I cannot control the experiences outside of the classroom. However I can control the experiences they have in school! I aspire to inspire these kiddos and create and environment where they can be creative, engaged, and afforded the things they need to be their best everyday!
Interactive notebooking allows students to engage in hands-on learning. Fifth grade students are getting ready to become middle schoolers, but they are still kids that love to interact with each other and learn kinesthetically. Students will use their notebooks, tape, folders, markers, and pencils in a daily routine during science and ELA. These students are not ready to merely take notes in a lecture type of environment. So interactive notebooking is a fun and engaging way for students to learn new material, as well as the skill of note taking; which is a skill they will NEED throughout their schooling career.
