Help me give my students some amazing books with children that look like them, some fun STEM activities; as well as headphones that will allow us to use technology in the classroom.
I teach at a Title I school in Tennessee where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and participate in our after-school tutoring program. Some of the time, I find that it is difficult for some of my kiddos to just sit down. Can you really blame them? It is hard for me as an adult to sit still for 6 hours in a day...I like to move around to get my mind working and be successful.
Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best.
They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day. I love seeing the excitement on their faces while they are learning. Students will have the autonomy to select the best seating that works for them on any particular day depending on the work they are doing. I believe their comfort and the opportunity for mobility will allow them to be more focused in their academic responsibilities.
We need a class set of headphones! We use our Chromebooks once a day for either stations or additional practice and headphones are a necessity! Not only do we not have enough headphones for our entire class, but about half the headphones we do have do not work. It is an immense inconvenience and often times a huge distraction for my students when they are not on their Chromebooks but others are. My students benefit from having different activities read aloud to them through their Chromebook, so it is imperative to everyone's learning (and sanity) that we get a class set of up-to-date and working headphones.
My students live in an underserved community and have little access to books beyond school.
During school hours, it is very important for me to set aside time for them to read each day. That being said, it is equally important that they see themselves represented in the books they have access to. These books will be used by the students and myself.
Almost every book listed features a main character of color and/or a woman and promotes social justice and activism.
