My students need organized centers for small group instruction and a microwave to cook lunch when they come to tutoring. I am teaching an advanced math class to students who are struggling with mathematical concepts.
My students live in the heart of Germantown, MD. Our student population is special, 78% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch, this means we also serve every student breakfast before school. We serve a population of homeless students. For most of my students, they feel safer at school than they do at home, that is, until last week. Our students are Hispanic, African American, Asian, Caucasian, and European. My classes have about 45% ESOL students, while about 15% of the school population is ESOL students.
The microwave will allow students who chose to spend lunch being tutored a way to continue to eat a hot lunch. Organized centers will allow for my time for instruction of mathematical concepts instead of distributing materials to students for each activity.
The organized stations allow for materials such as journals, pencils, calculators, and rulers to be stored right where the students are seated.
It will mean more time practicing math and less time getting up out of their seats to gather the materials they need. We need more calculators as students are usually sharing one between four students currently. A calculator per student will allow each student to find their own answer and then discuss that answer with their table group and teacher.
