My students need a coil binding machine and the coils to create books and projects.
I have twenty-five wonderful, energetic, and curious first-grade students. The students in my classroom speak a variety of languages, eight total. My school is 88% free or reduced price lunch, and that percentage is quickly rising. Forty-nine percent of the students at my school identify as Asian, 26% identify as African American, 14% identify as Hispanic, 10% identify as Caucasian, and 1% identify as American Indian.
My classroom is rich with diversity, and we celebrate each student's identity and culture.
My students are always moving. I use alternative seating, center-based learning, and differentiation to target the needs of all of my students.
In my school, the classrooms are co-taught and have a cluster of students who are just learning English or have special needs. I teach in a special education co-taught classroom. I am passionate about teaching to the needs of each of my students. I do not believe in a "cookie cutter" approach and often have each student working on something different at the same time which creates a need for more supplies.
In first grade students learn to become writers. To get them encouraged and excited about reading and writing we like to turn our writing into books. In order to do that we need a binding machine with coils. The students will be able to publish a compilation of their writing and take it home as a keepsake. This also gets them excited to do their best work because they know it is going to be published.
The binding machine will also be used to make social stories and visual schedules for students with Autism and other special needs.
The students that I get each year continue to increase with their needs and what they need to be successful. One of those things is social stories. With a binding machine I will be able to make social stories that can be kept, are durable, and can be reused for students that need them to be successful.
