A Place For Me

My students need a table to sit at and learn at their own pace.

My Students

How can I teach a group of students when we don't have a table to sit at to share our thoughts?

I am the luckiest teacher on Earth, I have been given the opportunity to teach and foster the love of learning to a wonderful and amazing group of 6 year old children.

My students enjoy coming to school every day because they love to be challenged with new learning experiences. They are eager learners who enjoy listening to stories with their friends. I love to teach new topics, which is great, because my students love to learn and discuss all the new things they are taught in class. Fortunately, for the students, they attend a Title I School that is located in the inner city of Chicago. This means all of my students qualify and receive free breakfast and lunch.

My Project

A reading table is lacking in our classroom. I would like to see a large and durable table in our classroom. This table would be placed in the middle of our classroom so I could pull small groups of students and listen to them read followed by a deep discussion about characters and settings. This table is thick and has sturdy legs so it will definitely last many years. The most important thing I can teach my students to do is read, discuss and share their thoughts and that is what we will be doing at this table.

Any donation made to this project would make better students, readers, artists and thinkers.

By helping my students learn through sharing ideas you are helping me create a safe haven classroom. This project may seem very small but it will change many students' lives
