My project is to provide my students with a learning environment that excites them to learn. It gives them a sense of belonging and community, a place where they can feel at home. Providing my students with a more comfortable and exciting classroom will not only inspire me to be a better teacher but my students to be better learners. By placing a large area rug gives them a sense of home. The speakers will allow me to show videos, use online resources and occasionally play music to heighten concentration. Replacing my desk with a standing desk will not only introduce more space in my classroom it will give my students a sense of empowerment while they lead the classroom. Incorporating dry erase boards into my room gives my students a different way to work through problems, answer them and share with others. Finally, the Cricut will provide the most useful for my students. With this I will be able to create a multitude of things such as motivational wall decals and more importantly, it will allow for me to create instructional posters that are catered to what my students are learning. My students may also use this product during individual and group projects. Overall this project is to help my students understand that learning can be fun and that the classroom can be a welcoming and loving place.
