My amazing and diverse students are from a large urban community. We are a Title I school in a low-income community. We serves free breaksfast and lunch to all students from remote locations.
My reading students are resilant, hardworking and eager to continue learning during this time.
Each of my students are reading below grade level and would benefit from many different types of resources as they navigate this new world of "Distance Learning" due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While we are using Google Classroom and reading software programs to continue to provide vital teaching to students, they are in need of many diffferent types of resources in order to keep learning and thriving!Some of my students have technology available to them, while many others do not. Some are working alongside their younger siblings; sharing resources and being mentors. Some of my students have books to read during this time to continue to practice critical skills, but the majority do not.
Due to COVID-19, learning is now happening remotely for all my students. In order for them to be successful, they need access to high quality technology. Unfortunuately, this is not the case for many students. One student in particular has reached out about the desire to continue to grow but the lack of proper working equipment to do so.
When a child wants to be an active learner during this time, nothing should get in their way.
I want to be able to provide appropriate technology to ensure that learning can take place from home. I also want to provide paper and pencils in order for students to continue to take notes, work out their thoughts on paper and feel some sense of normalcy during this time.
In addition, students need to be well cared for, now more than ever. Providing deodorant and comforting food items, such as Pop Tarts is a small way to show how much they are cared for.
