Our students live in an urban area that is very diverse. The majority of the students are from an extremely low socioeconomic background. The students range from high performing to extremely far behind their grade level. Lastly, we are now part of a program that invites refugees to our school and creates a diverse family of students. I want my class to have all of the experiences that every child deserves. Most of the students in our class have no concept of life outside our city. Most of the students have not left the city. A large number of students come to school without supplies, full stomachs, or a stable home environment. With this being said, the students are eager to learn and eager to make their lives meaningful. They see, with encouragement, that they can be what they choose. With hard work and a good attitude, these kids can be successful, if given the opportunity.
I am from a Title I school that provides free lunch for the entire student body.
Our Kindergarteners need school supplies. At our school, we do not have a lot of parents who bring in supplies and it is left to the teacher to provide for all of the children. My students need a new pencil sharpener, along with new pencils for the year. With a lot of wear and tear, we need a new sharpener. And no one can figure out where all those pencils go and they are always gone before you know it. Kindergartners are brand new to the school and they need to have a great first experience. With the extra supplies, we can have an engaging year!
We will use the construction paper for different interactive lessons.
Students will be able to use sticky notes for exit slips. Students can use new dry erase markers on their whiteboards to be interactive with our lessons. Different ink pens will be a new experience for them when they are completing their writing. The other supplies would be helpful and beneficial for any projects we do throughout the year.
