My students need binders to continue practicing their organizational skills. we are beginning our novel studies, and the students would benefit from having a designated journal space where they can focus on one topic.
Our school supports SLIFE (Students with interrupted or limited formal education) students with life skills, language, literacy, and career preparation. Our students come from different countries all over the world such as Somalia, El Salvador, Mexico, Syria, Nepal and Iraq.
Our students are truly grateful for the opportunity to be a part of our growing community.
They show us their gratitude by showing up everyday and working through the challenges that are presented to them in language and literacy classes. Our students are working diligently to learn to speak and read clearly and to eventually take the HiSet test and move on to college!
Our students attend seven classes per day. They each carry seven individual notebooks, not including their text books, and personal supplies.
We are working on putting binders together to minimize the paper and notebook load on the students.
Each binder can hold up to 5 subjects interchangeably. I feel that a binder would help the students focus better once they are organized.
One of the goals of my classroom is to help the students to learn about responsibility and accountability. With these binders, the students will manage folders, class work, notes, and homework They will be able to organize units to utilize as points of reference later in the school year.
The writing notebooks will help the students as they work on their novel studies. Having a secure place with space to write journal entries, discussion questions, thoughts, and feelings will provide the students with a new sense of comfort as opposed to loose leaf sheets of paper.
