I teach at a Title I school where every student gets free breakfast in the classroom and free school lunch daily. I have a very diverse classroom culture with students representing many cultures. Vietnamese, Somalian, Mexican, and African American are just a few of the cultures represented and celebrated in the classroom.
Teaching in a low socioeconomic, multicultural setting is an inspirational and unique educational experience.
These students deserve the same resources as schools without such socioeconomic challenges. It is an honor to be a part of their lives and I hope to provide them at least the basics to make progress in their educational experiences.
The students use white boards and dry erase markers daily. They are used in all academic areas and reduce paper waste. We are given one....that is right, ONE dry erase marker per student per school year. The students use the markers for interactive writing, math practice, handwriting practice and so much more. We NEED more markers, please!
Our classroom does not have a space for students to store their backpacks and hanging them on the backs of the chairs limits the walking space around the classroom.
I would like to use the hooks to affix to their desks so their backpacks are out of the way and easily accessible.
First grade life science includes plant life. The viewing of the entire life cycle of the plant, including the root system, will help the students better understand the plants and how they grow.
