My students are eager to learn and always trying find an alternative route to solve a problem. They are compassionate, and love to share everything, from knowledge to pencils.
I serve three 6th grade science classes and three 7th grade science classes.
I currently have approximately 146 students, and we are currently exploring our science exit projects... My learners are beyond excited and coming up with amazing ideas; they are truly enthused, often stopping me in the hall to discuss a change that they may need to make or an overall change in concept, one of the major problems they may face is that they cannot obtain the required materials like a poster board , glue or construction paper to make their ideas pop on display.
My students are often faced with disappointment, and I hate to add to that by telling them I cannot afford to provide a few of the basic supplies like a staple gun to hang their completed projects, staples, colored backing paper, and glue, or print their color pictures that they require to complete these scientific master pieces.
Students require the basics in order to be successful throughout the school year. The availability of supplies like glue, pencils contruction and colored printing paper reduces the possible stress that some students may have because their families are unable to provide these items. Students thrive when they feel supported and this is what I plan on doing with these supplies throughout the year. i would love to properly display and capture the learners accomplishments by laminating and posting their progress using the requested classroom laminator. The presentation board I am requesting will be a great support mid year when they are required to produce mandatory science projects and exit projects at the close of the year, because many of the learners do not have the financial means to purchase the items to display their research/ projects. Your support will aide a learner in meeting their goals and taking pride in their work.
