Our primary students are energetic learners who have a thirst for learning. Living in an urban neighborhood on the far south side of Chicago our students have shown that they can face any challenges that come their way! As teachers, we want to also show them that with learning can also come fun!
The experiences most of our students receive outside the classroom are limited or none at all.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Luckily, from the minute they walk into our school we focus on their future and make sure we meet all their needs. All the teachers try their best to be creative and positive hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic achievement.
All of the materials being requested are things that they will use on a daily basis. Colored pencils, markers, scissors, and glue sticks are all things that they use in their daily writing, word work, math stations, and science journals. There is not a time that our supply bins are away. They are always placed in the middle of our groups ready to be used for whatever the kids may need the materials for throughout the day. All the materials will be used and used often.
Being prepared is the biggest struggle I have as a teacher.
My students are so hungry for learning but lack the supplies to reach their potential. I have to help them overcome that simple hurdle and giving them the right tools is all that it takes. A simple box of crayons or glue to put their projects together are all they need to help reach their educational goals!
