I work with many students from various backgrounds. They are busy individuals who like to learn. Hands-on projects help them to learn. About 60% of the students at our school participate in the free and reduced-price lunch program. We also have a backpack program that provides a donation of food to the many families who need assistance.
My students are part of a school community of 600 students.
The school is full of the most caring students and staff. Our school believes “kind is the new cool” and they are accepting of others.
If you have ever worked with 1st graders you know they share everything- including germs. Especially with the current situation, I have been thinking about ways to maximize easy to sanitize materials. The headphones will be used at a computer with assigned users and cleaned with district approved sanitize between uses. The headphones I currently have have foam or fuzzy material on the headphones, making them difficult to sanitize.
The name plates are also very easy to sanitize.
I currently use name tags laminated and placed on the student's desk. They are not very easy to clean without damage. The name plates will also allow a place to store pencils. This will keep my students from losing pencils or using a pencil that belongs to someone else.
The less germs in my room will mean higher attendance.
