Help me give my students primary journals, self-adhesive pockets, laminating pouches, batteries, timers, magnetic clothespins, and craft supplies such as pipe cleaners, googly eyes, faces, hands, cotton balls to help restock our classroom.
My inner-city kindergarten students are eager to learn and share. For many of these students, this is their first official school experience. With this in mind, I want these students to continue to want to learn and come to school.
I want my students to still be eager and willing to learn after kindergarten and for their entire lifetime.
They come to school excited and curious from all different types of backgrounds and starting points. Given support and opportunities, they are all capable of getting a strong educational foundation that will benefit them their entire lives.
Odds and ends are always needed to help each new group of students have a great learning experience. I really like providing my students with these items, as they really do help keep students engaged and learning. Consumable items, such as journals, batteries, craft materials, self-adhesive pockets all help keep things running smoothly. Other things we use to help materials last longer, such as the laminating pouches or to replace worn out items like timers and clothespins.
Replenishing items that students need is a never-ending process.
The items in this project are all items that are currently used in my classroom. I just gave out the last of the primary lined journals to my current class. Nothing is nicer than giving a child a brand new journal for them to create and hone their writing. We need the other materials to replace many of the things we use to create scenes or characters to go with our lessons. Students love creating!
Another item, the self-adhesive pockets, are used on the tables to hold a nameplate in place that has a useful reference the students refer to throughout the day for their name, letter and number assistance. The batteries are mostly used for our wireless headphone listening center that the students absolutely love.
All of these items may not seem impressive, but they are just a few of the little parts that make learning fun and lasting.
