I am currently teaching at a Title I school in a low socioeconomic neighborhood where 100% of students receive free breakfast and lunch. This school year, I have twenty-five second/third grade English language learners students. Most of my students come from Central America and Mexico. For most of my students, English is their third language. My students vary in ability, background and learning styles. It is this diversity that makes my class a special place to be.
My students walk into the classroom with enthusiasm to learn and regardless of the obstacles they may face at home, come to school eager to learn something new every day.
They know that through hard work and perseverance they can rise to any challenge.
Organizational tools like storage caddies are essential in keeping our art supplies clean and organized. It makes students take ownership of the supplies in the caddy and therefore being more responsible for keeping it organized and clean. They will be used daily to store crayons, markers, colored pencils, brushes, watercolors, scissors, and glue. We waste instructional time with distribution of materials in class, which means less time for creativity.
With these caddies my students will have access to all the art materials and tools necessary to create and express themselves.
I want to my spend time providing instruction and giving students time to work and not wasting time passing out materials and spending too much time cleaning up. Storage caddies will help to streamline the handling of materials, giving students more time to create!
