My Students

Our students are fantastic! They come from a variety of backgrounds which makes the classroom a very diverse environment. The school is in an urban setting where we have many ELL students. There are over 700 preK-6th grade students at our school. Many of them do not have access to healthy meals, so the school runs a food pantry for students to take food home over the weekend.

These students want to do well, but many lack the tools needed to succeed.

My Project

As we head into the end of this school year, my students and I are still trying to organize the classroom. We are running out of supplies we need such as pencils and glue. My students also work a lot on the floor or in a comfy chair, but I only have 3 clipboards in the classroom! This makes it difficult if they have to lug a heavy binder to write on instead of just taking a piece of paper and a clipboard. My students also have a lot of their writing in a folder, but we need a pocket chart to keep them all organized in. Being able to put it on the wall will keep it off the floor in a bin, which is currently where it is stored.

We also have fun out of whiteboard sheets which I use to teach lessons.

The end of the year is when we need these supplies the most; we're working on social studies projects and the students are struggling because they need many items that we don't have in the classroom anymore. The kids in the classroom are also experiencing a lot of allergies and colds and we need more tissues! Also, we need to have glue and pencils for the projects that we are working on. Currently, I have 1 glue stick left in the classroom!

As you can see, we are very low on supplies and we still need to organize our assignments. We are running out of supplies and we need to get organized!
