My students need Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head games, play-doh, laminating pouches, Velcro tape and a tablet for learning and practicing math levels K-3rd.
The excitement of "Fun Friday" isn't just once a week...it's every day! This year my students requested more STEAM such as science and art experiments and as well as computer activities. Many of our new resources are used on a daily basis during free choice time.
My students come to school with many concerns outside of their control so, in our classroom, we utilize teamwork and social skills to the fullest potential.
Our school is a small school making a big difference for students who have been placed in our building for various personal/private reasons. Many of them do not have "typical" experiences prior to entering the school system.
Here, they receive additional resources and opportunities such as a smaller class size, as well as strategies for social and emotional learning in addition to academic skills. If funded, we plan to keep these resources in our room, but make them accessible to other students in grades 3-12 in our school.
My students' abilities range from pre-k to above grade level in mathematics. As I become more used to teaching the primary grades, I am learning that my students want manipulatives. Anything they can touch, move, pick up, etc...! I have been making a lot of laminated activities with the units that we've covered so far. I would like to continue to create more. This requires printer ink, laminating pouches, binder clips to keep them all together and Velcro for removable placement within activities. Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to get a DonorsChoose.org project funded which contained K-1st grade "math folder games". In this project, I am extending those folder games for the 2nd-3rd grade levels.
The students in my classroom have had a blast with Flashlight Fridays so I am going to introduce them to UV markers and lights so that we can have another way to creatively complete our work with "invisible ink".
The Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head sets will be used for free choice time after we complete a lesson about symmetry using the sets. The Play-Doh will replenish the containers that have been used for the last two years during math, reading, science and free choice time. Thank you so much, dear donors, for contributing to the wonderful lessons we enjoy at our school!
