When students experience challenges in their lives it makes it difficult to focus at school! My students are from a low-income high-poverty community. They are either from a single parent, foster, or homeless situation or living on a single income. The range of disabilities includes Autism, ADHD and Learning Disabilities.
In spite of their disabilities, they are very motivated and excited to learn!
Our school is a Title I school receiving 100% free lunch, serving African American and Latino students. We strive to prepare our students to be college and career ready and one way is to teach them about taking charge of their own learning. Whatever challenges their home and community bring, the school will still be a safe haven for them.
Having a place to organize their resources will make a big difference to my students. They always lose their things, do not know where to put finished tasks, and it is stressful when you cannot find your items!
Having a place for everything will make it easier for the students to put, get, and find what they are looking for.
Having a place to put our stuff will help the students learn the importance of being organized, saving time by not looking for items all the time, more efficient with resources, and teaching them to be more responsible with their stuff. We will be able to have a place for everything. It will be easier for them to find a spot to put their own stuff and pull it whenever they need it. This also increases academic performance because they will be more focused on their task rather than wasting time looking for things.
