As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move. They love to read, and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical."
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
We are going to learn to recycle, reuse, and reduce. My students are learning to keep our planet greener. It's important for everyone to learn to reuse a recycle water bottle when going to different places. I am planning on taking our water bottles to all our field trips and during class so they are able to drink more water since it's getting hot. Our classroom helpers will receive a recycle water bottle to take with us on our field trips and during classroom. We love to encourage our helpers and students to reuse their water bottles.
They are going to have a unique opportunity to inspire their parents to use recyclable water bottles at home.
It's important to learn the 3 "R's" in order to conserve our environment. We live really close to the ocean and it's necessary for them to take care of their environment. We would love your support to learn how to take recycling to make our Earth a nicer place.
