I'm a newer teacher, and after teaching from home, I can't wait to get back into the classroom! The school I work at is an AVID school with a Daily 5 embedded ELA program. We have just implemented a push for building a caring school community to teach students to be empathetic and kind to one another. The school I work at is a mixture of lower-income families and the middle class, but there is much parent involvement.
These students deserve the world, and I want to get them some supplies to help their learning expand.
I want to instill responsibility and organization in them while encouraging them to be independent!
Boy do students go through supplies fast, but this means they've been doing a LOT of learning which makes me happy. These are just some basic supplies that we need year-round in our classroom that we have started running out of. We use whiteboard markers to help solve math problems on our desks (whiteboard surface, super cool). The scissors are used all the time, somehow the scissors fairy has stolen some of our other ones. The flashlights? Well, we are starting a flashlight Friday where students get to have the lights off, find a comfy spot around the room and use their flashlights to have a "camp out" reading time.
