Where, Oh Where, Did Those Supplies Go?

My students need a refresh of classroom supplies to finish the year strong! Those supplies include paper, dry erase markers, erasers, and a new pencil sharpener.

My Students

When you think of your elementary school days, what stands out to you? I want my students to remember our classroom full of things to investigate and learn about.

My students love to explore our world and discover new things.

I teach at a small school in rural Florida. My classes include many students for whom English is their second language (including one student that has come to us recently speaking no English) and students who have special learning needs. Our fourth grade is departmentalized and I try to do projects & find enough materials to get every child involved. I am amazed at the level and complexity of the conversations they have during project/lab time and try have as many hands-on activities as possible in order to draw out those conversations.

My Project

After completing our state writing test, my students are in need of cap erasers for the remaining portion of the school year. They put the erasers that came in last August to good use, but now we have none!

We're in need of basic supplies to refresh the stash we've used throughout the year.

We still have a nine weeks left and each of my 75 students is fervently writing a story to publish. Unfortunately, our pencil sharpeners have given up after years of being used in a writing classroom. We need a heavy-duty pencil sharpener that can keep up with the speed at which my students write.

We are in need of markers to use with our individual dry erase boards that are used to give responses throughout a lesson so I can gauge the understanding of the class.

One thing I love to do in my classroom is involve my students in the process of making their own science textbook/notebook. However, this activity requires a lot of paper. We need more paper for these interactive science notebooks and science lab activities. These activities are crucial in the understanding of science content. My students, like many, learn best with hands-on activities. Our notebooks allow us to complete activities and record our learning. Without the paper, the partially printed notes for my struggling students and students that speak English as a second language would be missing. Very few 4th graders are ready to take notes like those expected in middle or high school. But, by having a partially filled out page, that's exactly the challenge that my students rise up to and accept.
