Eighty-five percent of students in my K-8 school qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. I teach in an Inclusion Kindergarten classroom, meaning that there is a population of children within the room with documented learning or behavioral disabilities. There are 25 children in my classroom, 18 boys and 7 girls. Many of the children are first generation Americans, and English is not the primary language spoken at home; for many of the children their main exposure to the English language comes in my classroom.
Tissues, pencils, dry erase markers, hand sanitizer and glue; these are a few of our favorite things and it shows by how many of these items we run through in a year. I sneak them in myself on my weekly trips to the store, but we could really use a bulk shipment to get us through the rest of the year. This project is just for glue as we are down to a two week supply. We make crafts, we cut and glue words, numbers, and sentences, all of which requires glue. We also lose caps sometimes which makes our supply diminish quicker, despite my best efforts.
