I teach in a Title I School. This means we have a high population of economically disadvantaged students. Our school receives 100% free lunch/breakfast for all students. Our school also has a high population of military families. Even though they may not have as much as other children this does not keep them from showing how amazingly smart children they are!
You can teach a student a lesson for a day, but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.
This holds true for my group of kiddos. I teach an inquisitive group of kids who are always trying to learn more about the world around them. They love science, reading, math and using technology to learn with. My students turn everything into a lesson without being asked and are eager to share their findings. I am truly grateful to have such a great group of children.
These basic learning materials will help my students because they will be able to have the writing utensils needed to complete any activity that may come their way in their new adventure called 5th grade. The dry erase markers, crayola markers and pencils will help allow my students to collaborate and complete assignments without the worry of not having the supplies needed because they are already available.
This is so important to my group of kids because there are times when they wonder where their next meal will come from; therefore they are not always able to afford pencils, markers, and items they need for the classroom.
