My students need post-its, note cards, poster paper, and markers to complete our daily interactive activities.
Though we focus on different learning styles in our class, the one common material is PAPER!
My students are seventh and eighth graders with special needs ranging from Autism, emotional handicaps, cognitive impairments to ADHD.
Our school is a science, technology, engineering and mathematics magnet effectively serving students who live in high poverty households. Ninety percent of our students receive free or reduced lunch. Through innovative programs, we are showing some of the most rapid growth in the state as measured by standardized test score improvement.
We use poster paper and markers for gallery walks where the student gets up and around the classroom to do stations and activities. We use note cards each period for our Do Now where we initiate learning when we first walk in and Exit Ticket questions where we show what we learned as we walk out. We use the post-its in lots of different activities including our discussion panels where we jot down our thoughts before we present them to the group.
These may seem like basic supplies but they are essential to some of our most effective classroom procedures!
These paper products and markers will be used daily to communicate our learning and growth!
