Staying Organized and Keeping Track of Time in First Grade!
Help me give my students name tag holders, SitSpot circle seats, word and number swatters, timers, magnets, and a 30-slot mailbox.
My 1st grade students are eager, energetic, enthusiastic and have the privilege of living and learning in a city with the most ethnically diverse neighborhood in our country! Our school has recently celebrated 50 years of teaching and learning and we are now also an official STEM school! Our school is the first elementary STEM school in Anchorage and we are fortunate to have opportunities to integrate science, technology, engineering, and math throughout our day.
Each morning my students walk through the door and are greeted with new opportunities to explore and learn.
My students are enthusiastic learners and, as their teacher, I do my best to foster their learning and provide opportunities to grow as individuals. Each of my students comes from his or her own unique situation and home life and I am fortunate to be able to provide them all with opportunities to learn and grow.
The classroom materials that I am requesting will provide students with supplies, which will help them focus on learning and working. The variety materials I am requesting will help to have a positive impact on the students and their learning environment.
When students have the supplies they need to stay organized, they are able to focus more on learning.
The 30-slot mailbox will help students have an organized area for graded assignments. Additionally, it will help me distribute important notes that need to be sent home to families. The mailbox area will be a designated place for students to collect their work, as well as have another spot in the classroom for them to call their own!
My students would also benefit from having a large classroom timer and a set of smaller timers. The timers will be a great visual tool for my first-grade students. The timers will allow my students to be self-sufficient in keeping track of the remaining time for a variety of activities.
The letter and word swatters will allow the isolation of letters, words, parts of speech, context clues, numbers, etc. These can be used by both teachers and students with ELA, math, or even classroom games.
Additionally, our class needs a set of strong magnets. This will allow students to place their presentation posters on the whiteboard. In turn, this will allow students to focus on their presentation instead of focusing on holding their posters up for the class to be able to see.
The colorful set of SitSpots will assist me in organizing and managing students. These spots will also help students make independent choices by providing them with a visual aid for personal space.
I want my students to have the supplies they need. They deserve the best!
