I teach 10th grade Intensive Reading in a large district in Central Florida. This school is labeled as a Title I school, meaning that the school receives additional funding because of the poverty in the area. The town is known to have many Non-English speaking citizens. 100% of students receive free breakfast and lunch, with many getting backpacks of food to take home on the weekends. Many families are homeless, live in a hotel, or share housing with another family. The students are underprivileged but eager to learn. The students are kind and respectful towards me.
The students that come through my doors are willing to learn everyday.
I have a great group of students that choose to make the right choices and complete assignments. We have fun in the classroom while learning the necessary standards.
Interactive notebooks help students hold themselves accountable for learning. This tool is also used to help students become independent learners as well as responsible learners.
The students cut and glue daily in my classroom. The scissors and glue will be used by the students daily to help organize their work. On average I currently go through 8-10 glue sticks per week. The interactive notebook helps keep my students accountable for their learning. The notebook contains many resources they will need to be successful in my classroom. This is an AVID strategy which helps the students stay organized; as all their work is glued into the notebook. Please consider donating to a classroom where the students cannot afford something as simple as a stick of glue. Thank you for your consideration.
