Looking to Laminate for Hands on Learning

Help me give my students a colorfully organized classroom with a laminator to make small group activities more interactive!

My Students

I am so excited for this school year because I will continue to teach 7th grade Science! My kids come from a myriad of cultural backgrounds which makes our learning environment unique and exciting each day. They have a love of learning that is evident in their work ethic and I work hard to keep content engaging so that they continue to be interested in the wonders of Science.

Everyday my students give their best in the classroom because that is the culture we have built within our community.

They are eager to have their next hands on learning experience and it is my job to meet their expectations by giving them the resources to be successful beyond my classroom.

My Project

With your help these materials will create a learning environment that is eye catching, colorful, and well organized to keep students focused on their studies. The laminator will be used along with the chalk markers and the contact paper to give students means to express their thoughts on content in both illustrated and written form. We use small group work to build mastery and the craft storage is great for holding task cards and hands on activities. Gallery walks are much more manageable when students can use clipboards as they walk to posters hung with the colorful magnets around the room.

All of these items play a key role in keeping my students engaged as they interact with class materials, and your donation to my project will ensure they continue to push themselves to greatness.

The push lights have been an awesome resource for voice level cues in the classroom and setting working style expectations, while pencils and sharpener are an everyday need that I supply for my students. With the addition of these items my classroom will continue to be a safe space for kids to work freely and support one another.
