While time and space is not something that a teacher can freely dictate for her classroom, there are tools that can help us make the most out of our time and space together! Having pocket chairs where students can store their daily materials such as, reading books, headphones, scissors, etc., greatly limits the need to move around to get needed materials to learn and thus will give more minutes to use for learning. Our class have tables and so students need to store their materials in their assigned cubbies. Each time we transition into a new subject area, students would need to get up and walk to their cubbies to get the needed materials for the lessons. Having the pocket chairs will totally eliminate the 3-5 minutes of transition time to get the materials for the lessons. Throughout the day that's about 21-35 minutes saved that can be used for learning. Having stools for our guided reading time will allow for available space for students to work in small group setting and allow for mobility. The stools are small enough that I can meet with and service more students at the guided reading table. Currently, students feel cramped and crowded because of the bulky chairs. Our class also lacks many hands on math manipulatives that will greatly support our continual learning in math so by having these tools such as dice, magnetic dry erasers and dry erase pocket are essential tools. Students can become independent, creative and engaged learners when they can create their own math number sentences with the dice, writing it on a math template that is put into the dry erase pocket, solve it and erasing it with their dry eraser. These tools will help with becoming an independent learner.
