My Students

As a social studies teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom.

They are a low socio/economic population but my kids are very appreciative of the things that they are given.

The things I am requesting will be used every day in our 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 Project

Having the Crayola markers, scissors, map pencils and brightly colored paper, will allow my students to create visuals of their own in their interactive journals as well as help them engage into higher level thinking with puzzles and map skills visuals for our stations.

We use lots of foldables in their interactive journals and my kids like to use lots of color.

The Crayola markers and pencils will help the foldables in our interactive notebooks to stand out and become easier to remember and learn!

Once my students have completed their work in my classroom, they will be able to keep their minds engaged through the large floor puzzles and I Have...Who Has... card games!
