I teach Academic Intervention Services to students in grades K-5. Our rural elementary school, in upstate New York, has a student population of 340 students. Students who are at risk of failing the New York State Assessments and students who are having difficulty academically are recommended to receive Academic Intervention Services.
My students come from a diverse, economic background, with a significant amount of students who receive free and reduced-priced lunch.
They are all very eager to learn and love coming to school. Our students are independent, hardworking, and compassionate.
My students need storage bins and bin clips so all of their learning materials can be organized in the classroom. My students are very fortunate to have a multitude of learning materials but since space is limited, it's often difficult and time consuming for the students to locate specific learning materials. These baskets, bin clips and chalk markers will allow me to organize our learning materials into specific categories, such as sight words, phonics, comprehension, and letter sounds. Instead of wasting instructional and learning time trying to find specific materials, students will know where the materials are located and will be able to get right to work. There will be no more lost instructional time, waiting for students to gather the materials needed for that day's lesson. Instructional time will increase. Therefore, student success will increase. Students lose valuable instructional time when they come into the classroom and need to look for specific learning materials.
Having materials organized in bins will be highly beneficial to increased student achievement.
