My students are 93% Hispanic with special population of ESL, and special education students coming from economically disadvantage families.Our school is a Title 1 school. They are mostly on free or reduced lunch. These students are highly motivated to learn and they respond to hands-on activities that are learning centered.
Most of my students were affected by the recent flooding from Harvey.
We are ensuring to help them achieve learning despite the recent calamity that affected us.
Some of them come to school with missing supplies thus they need extra help to reach their learning potentials and goals.My Pre-AP students create their project requirements, by sharing one computer in my classroom. With all these limitations, my students learned perseverance and hardwork as the key to their success, thus I am hoping that they can get as much help as they can to meet the challenges in school.My ESL students will perform better if they have resources to visually aid them and other resources to target their needs.
I have seen how students respond positively to student centered activities and it will be of great help to them if they continue to receive resources via your good hearts for the future!
Students will be able to use and reuse laminated card sorts, posters, experiment and task cards to learn concepts and review before an exam. Since they are manipulatives, they make learning more effective and fun.
Laminated task and experiment cards are protected from any chemical spills or water accidents during a laboratory.
Laminated cards can be handled without worrying for wear and tear. They will lasts longer and can be reuse by all classes repeatedly.They can be recycled for more years to come. It will save time and effort to prepare. and can be repeatedly use or manipulated without being destroyed.They are easy to manipulate because of the added smoothness from the laminating film. they do not stick in the students' desks and can be easily pick up, because of less friction.
When I use laminated posters during a gallery walk, the film protect them from too much handling and stays good for the rest of the year and I can keep them for the next years to come. It saves time and effort to prepare for resources as they stay protected. They are durable and can be reuse, and shared with other teachers. The film protects the graphics from fading and ensures the pictures to stay vivid as ever! It also prevent dirt and dust seeping through the paper or card stock.Since our school is doing its best to economize, laminated testing materials can be reuse to save paper and ink! Students can write in the laminating film using erasable ink!
I hope my project can be supported to help my students perform well and reach their potentials. It will also save me time and energy so I can focus more on other necessities to meet the students' needs and help them prepare for a brighter future!
