Hooray! This project is fully funded
As a 3rd grade teacher in a rural low-income school district, my students are faced with challenges in and out of school. In addition to this, third grade is a challenging school year full of new concepts and skills. Students learn multiplication, division, how to write multi-paragraph research papers, and much more. My students come to school ready to take on new learning avenues.
My students are a diverse group of learners, eager to be challenged and taken to the next level of learning.
The students in my classroom have a desire to show their growth to the world around them. Each day they enter the classroom eager for new tasks. As their teacher, I strive to create a learning environment where they are loved, challenged, and eager to learn.
The requested furniture will promote cooperation, teamwork, problem-solving, and sense of community in my classroom. My students' favorite moments of the day are when they have the opportunity to work with partners and in groups. Our current classroom furniture includes individual student desks and one u-shaped table. Therefore, students only have one table available for meeting in small groups for projects and discussion. The addition of classroom tables would promote learning through problem solving and communication.
As students grow in problem solving and communication skills they will grow academically as well.
Our classroom will be able complete group projects and participate in classroom discussions in all subject areas.
