Staying Organized, Healthy, and Motivated All Year Long!
Help me give my students the chance to stay organized (large calendar, paper clips, and binder clips), make mistakes (erasers, expo cleaning liquid, and correction tape), be creative (scissors), stay healthy (clorox wipes) and earn candy rewards.
I teach at a diverse middle school where my classroom is made up of a variety of cultures, ethnicities, and socioeconomic levels. My students work tirelessly to achieve well in school. Most come from families where both parents work long hours. Some are faced with not knowing where the next meal will come from. Others help raise younger siblings while parents are at work. When tasked with options to retake assessments or redo assignments they always jump at the chance to improve their learning.
Helping students learn can be a lot of fun and a little bit messy. Perfection isn't achieved on the first try and everyone needs an eraser or correction tape along the way!
These basic classroom supplies will help me provide the needed items throughout the year for my students.
I've been told that my 5 inch scissors are just not 8th grade friendly, to quote a student from last year "Why do you have kindergarten scissors in an 8th grade classroom?!"
The large calendar will replace a smaller, more wore out calendar I've been using. Students love it because it visually displays school events, classroom tests, and most importantly student breaks. Students gotta stay healthy to stay in school and the wipes will help keep germs away while the candies will be used as incentives for good behavior (such as with a substitute) or motivation.
