I teach elementary education within New York State. In our district, we educate the poorest students in the state. 100% of the students within our school receive free lunch due to their poverty levels. Despite their families' financial status and the difficult lives they have been given, my students come in ready to learn. My students are 2nd graders and are eager to learn!
My students are amazing !
During this pandemic, it would be beneficial for my students to have the proper materials to learn. I would love to give the students pencils, paper, crayons, scissors, workbooks, etc. This would allow my students to continue with their learning at home.
Our school district was only able to provide technology for students in grades 6-12. This means that none of my students can be reached as needed. None of them are unable to receive instruction in the ways most beneficial for them.
All students learn differently. Although we are doing distance learning right now, not all students are able to use technology and/or learn with technology. Some students need to have a hands on approach. With these materials for the students, they will be able to complete paper and pencil activities at home! They can also integrate other special area subjects such as art as well. The materials can also benefit some of the siblings they have in their home. As a teacher, you want ALL students to learn no matter what way they are learning!
