My students need Paper Mate Pink Pearl Cap Erasers, Expo Dry Erase Markers, Ticonderoga Pencils, Pink Pearl Erasers, Crayola bulk markers, colored pencils and crayons, a set of classroom scissors, and a Giant Magnetic Lined Page.
I am in my tenth year of teaching in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I have a diverse group of learners with abilities as low as Kindergarten all the way up to fourth grade (above grade level). Regardless of their abilities, I have discovered that my students are eager learners that are highly motivated and want to do better each and everyday.
As a third grade teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with many challenges.
What I have learned in my career is that children are resilient and can/will persevere when faced with such challenges. This new group is no different! They are dedicated learners who are always striving to do their best.
Many of my students are coming to school each day without their basic needs being met. I have had students this year worry about where they would be staying at night or where their next meal is coming from. Although I may not have control over what my students are facing in their home life, I do have control over our classroom environment! I strive to make our room a safe, warm and loving environment where everyone is a contributing member.
Every August, parents are expected to begin the daunting task of purchasing school supplies for their child. As a child, I remember this being a fun task that I looked forward to very much. I enjoyed picking out my pack of Crayola NEON markers and prominently displaying them on the first day of school. Yes, I was a child of the 80's and Neon was in! Fast-forward to present day where I am a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school.
As it turns out, not every child enjoys back-to-school shopping because their parents may not be able to supply them with the tools and materials they need to succeed.
I have witnessed first hand the disappointment that students feel when they realize that they do not have the supplies that are "required". Is this the child's fault? Should they not be able to complete projects because they do not have the proper school supplies necessary? I do not believe so.
With your help, all students in my classroom will have access to a bulk supply of Crayola markers, crayons and colored pencils. We will also have a class set of scissors. All students will have access to Ticonderoga Wood Pencils and Paper Mate Arrowhead Pink Pearl erasers and cap erasers. We will also have a giant magnetic lined paper to be used for demonstration purposes when we begin to use our lined paper.
