My students come to school every day eager to learn. I want to give them an exciting and interesting learning experience while they are there. I am striving to inspire them so learning will continue as they leave the classroom door at the end of our school day. I want the lessons I teach them to make their lives fruitful and happy.
I teach in a high poverty, inner city public school with a population of almost 700 students.
More than a third of our students are Special Needs students. Many are part of the Autism Program that is housed in my school. Almost half are English Language Learners. All students receive a free breakfast and lunch every day. I want to feed their minds, as well as the school feeds their bodies. I would like to instill in them a lifelong love of learning and to respect and embrace the diversity of our wonderful school and community.
Our school district is implementing a new literacy program this year. I need a white board easel to use during whole group instruction to create anchor charts. Anchor charts are created by the whole class to help them recall the skills and strategies they are learning to help them with comprehension of difficult text. Students refer to the charts and use them as support tools as they answer questions, expand ideas, or contribute to discussions and problem-solving in class.
My project is for a Best-Rite Wheasel, Double Sided Dry Erase Melamine Whiteboard Easel, Expo Markers and I would love to have a Nameplate Display Tray for each of my students.
Display student name plates give children easy access to everyday supplies. They have a slot in back that name plates slide right into, plus a molded tray in front to keep frequently used supplies—like crayons, pencils, markers or glue sticks—from rolling off of desks. This saves so much instructional time because students are not searching inside desks or on the floor or asking for replacements as the tools they need are organized and in easy reach.
With these much needed tools, my students will be ready to begin a school year that is organized and structured so that every child knows exactly how to achieve the highest of expectations.
