My students are always excited and eager to learn new things. Our classroom consists of a diverse group of students from typical students to those with learning disabilities. Most students don’t have access to technology at home, so a lot of them are only exposed to technology when they’re in school. I have an inquisitive group of students, who are always eager to work with technology.
They attend a Title I school where they all qualify for free breakfast and lunch.
The majority of them come from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
No one likes to get sick. The main thing that keeps students out of school is illness. I want to stock up on Clorox Wipes, Hand Sanitizer, Kleenex, Soap, and Lysol to help keep my classroom clean and as close to germ free as possible. When one student gets sick in class it spreads like wildfire, not only to the students but also to me as a teacher. A clean, healthy classroom will help to reduce sickness and help to reduce absences for the remainder of the year.
This project will help students develop a shared responsibility for our classroom and build healthy habits.
Sometimes we take for granted the basic items such as soap, toothpaste, deodorant, body lotion, brushes, picks, and chapstick. These simple products can be taken for granted by many, however many of our students do not have these items in their home. We would like to be able to provide them when and if needed. When students aren't always able to have the basic essentials they often don't perform their best.
These personal care packages can be stored in their backpacks and can be used at home or after physical education.
