Supplies Make School Happen!

My students need Quill Brand Copy Paper, Kleenex Flat Box Facial Tissue, Crayola Classic Washable Markers, and other basic school supplies to support their learning in my room and their homerooms.

My Students

My students are a mix of diverse learners and general education students. As a school, we're trying to include as many students as possible in the general education environment while still providing instruction in smaller settings. To achieve that, teachers and students are collaborating across environments.

Building responsibility and confidence makes a huge difference for my students.

We have rotations for math and reading to practice different skills and to build independence. It is difficult for my students at the beginning of the year, but by December, they can usually work for a full 30 minutes without teacher intervention during their independent work time.

My Project

This project represents about half of what my students need in a regular school year. Students bring items from supply lists every year, but there are always students that come to me when they're missing something or they forgot some materials at home. The tissues, copy paper and pencils support students in my room and the larger homerooms for grades 4, 5, and 6. The markers, colored paper, and glue are used directly by students in the creation of presentation materials, study materials, and group work.

We often take the presence of supplies as a given, but some students are very reluctant to ask for help, and others just need to borrow an item briefly.

Making sure we have extra supplies is a simple way to eliminate one major stressor from student lives. We can't change the whole world, but we can provide the tools for success to our students.
