My Students

The coronavirus pandemic has shut down our school and made learning very difficult for my students. The majority of my students lack the supplies needed to make them successful at home. My students' parents are going through some financial difficulties because some have lost their jobs. This has caused some of my students to loose their internet connections. Even though we have started doing everything digital, some of them do not have that and could use some resources at home to learn in other ways. This has been very tough to deal with but hopefully this will help me provide a more successful learning environment for my students by providing educational resources and other things they need. Thank You!

My Project

I have included a variety of resources to help my class. The resources are all specifically picked for each one of the students in my class. I have two students who do not have an area so I have an included a desk for them. I have also included games and activities for each student depending on their struggles and sets of manipulative they can use to practice along with me when doing distance learning. I know these items would help my students. Some of the stuff I included is also for them to have some family time at home during this difficult situation.
