Hooray! This project is fully funded
The 4th grade teachers at Cleveland Academy of Leadership are lucky to have amazing students year after year. We serve a large community of learners with various needs from various ethnicities and backgrounds. We have the privilege of teaching diverse classes filled with students from all walks of life.
We have a little more than 500 student in our school and all of them receive free breakfast and the majority of the students are on free and/ or reduced lunch.
I have a class of twenty-one 9 and 10 year old boys and girls. The students in our school range from k-5th students.
It is not uncommon to come into our classroom and see glue, scissors, and tape on our desks. That is because the students are given the opportunity to create meaningful graphic organizers that will allow them to manage the information they learn. By allowing students to arrange the content that they learn in a meaningful and creative way, students are able to retain the information better because they are not “just memorizing” a lot of facts.
Students in my class are very active learners and use technology in some way daily. Our classroom uses a hands on learning approach to help students retain information. They use dry erase boards to practice math problems, they use glue to create interactive notebooks, and we are always writing and need quality pencils and erasers to do so.
Since our school is in a poverty stricken area, students are unable to come to school with their basic necessities.
These supplies will be a valuable resource considering many are unable to bring their supplies to school. Not only will students be able to produce quality work with these basic supplies, but they will be able to come to school without stressing about how they will complete their work.
