My Students

My students are full of energy, potential and excitement about learning. They are eager to come to school to participate in their learning activities. These students come to school with many different learning styles, paces, and abilities. We are located in a rural small town with limited learning facilities, white collar jobs, social events, family entertainment and resources. Therefore, many of my students are limited in childhood exposures such as visiting museums, beaches, aquariums, libraries, theaters, plays and amusement parks.

It is our job as educators to provide the best learning experiences we can offer to our students.

We can bring some exposure to our students through projects and research. However, some of these learning experiences require materials and resources. I would like to provide the resources to my students so everyone will have an equal playing field as they participate in these projects. The students' creativity will not be limited due to limited resources or funding.

My Project

The supplies I have selected will help my students by giving them the opportunity to create detailed, colorful, and informational posters, brochures, and pamphlets to better demonstrate their writing, thinking process and information from their research.

These supplies are very beneficial to my students; first allowing the presenter to clearly exhibit their information; and secondly providing the listeners (classmates) a clear, attractive, detailed project to enhance understanding, details and the presenter's vision!

Giving every student the opportunity to create posters, brochures and pamphlets related to social studies, science and ELA themes is essential to students' meeting the state required standards: aiding them to grow in their crafts to speak/listen/present, research/ask/answer questions,and enhance their technology skills through researching, building models and illustrating their data. Every students (not just a selected few) will have the opportunity and supplies necessary to promote comprehension and communication skills to print pictures, research information/data and create graphics designs using the Memobird printer and printer paper. In addition, the students will print from class printers with the HP ink cartridges and card-stock paper requested. Students posters, brochures and or pamphlets will be displayed and attached to bulletin boards with (velcro (loops/hoops) in the hall (with little hands touching and looking through them), so to maintain the projects' appearances the fadeless paper and lamination is needed to protect their work. The Luxja carrying bag will be used to store and transport supplies from class to class. I work with Pre-K through second grade students, traveling to different classes each day.

I have noticed in my years of teaching, students are able to speak with pride and confidence when they know their work is well represented. What a wonderful way to grow writers, editors, public speakers, architects, and the list goes on and on..
