My students need some recycling receptacles, a recycling book and game, and a photo printer to expand their knowledge on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
My students ask me, "What can I do?
I'm just one person. How can I, a kid, make a difference?" My response to them is that as long as one is dedicated to preserve or protect someone, something, or a cause, one individual, whether young or old can change the world. My classroom is filled with bright and motivated 4th grade English Language Learners whom are eager to learn in an environment where they will feel safe and accepted by their peers. Unfortunately, my students come from a highly disadvantaged community. Our school is also centrally located in one of the most economically depressed areas. My students like to utilize technology in their everyday learning. However, the community where my students reside does not provide them with many, if any, opportunities where they can utilize technology. However, this does not stop my students from setting goals and striving to achieve them.
My fourth graders need some materials that will empower them with knowledge on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle in their everyday experiences. The recycling receptacles will allow my students to start recycling paper, and plastic that they normally have just been throwing away in our regular trash can. The blue receptacles will remind them that we must do everything in our power to keep our Earth clean. The "Going Green" book and "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" game will provide my students with information, strategies, and activities as to how to help reduce waste at school, at home, and in their communities. With this knowledge, my students can become more aware of what they can do to help keep our Earth clean and healthy. Finally, the photo printer and photo paper will allow my students to chronicle in pictures their evolution into becoming environmentally conscious individuals.
The recycling book, game, receptacles, and photo printer will have a major impact in my students' learning.
These resources will assist in expanding my students' knowledge in becoming environmentally conscious individuals. In addition, these resources can be used across the curriculum. Thank you for your continued support.Read More
