My 12 through 14-year-old students have gone to school together for most of their lives. They are a group of down-to-earth kids from a small, rural town in Pennsylvania. Since many of them have been together since Pre-K, the students and their families know each other well. Over a third of the students qualify for a free or reduced-price lunch.
Classroom environment is essential for the every day learner.
Every student learns in a different environment. My students are a mixture of kids who have different learning styles; some learn better through auditory (hearing) activities, and others need visual (seeing) activities. This is where this project will certainly come in handy. I would like to get a few classroom environment friendly items to include in my classroom. These items would help create a small area where the students can relax and work on some of their projects together.
I know that the students will benefit from these items.
My students will be able to experience learning a new way! It will give them a great feeling of safety in a classroom environment.
What I am trying to give them is a place where they can sit beyond the traditional chair and desk.
I believe that students learn in different ways as well as different settings. Sometimes a good way to learn is on some comfortable cushions and a rug to spread out on. We will be using those specific books for reading assignments on the rug and cushions that are also in the project. We would be using the clipboards as a place the students can put their activity or project on so that they can successfully do their homework on the rug with the cushions.
The supplies that I am asking for are quite simple, but I believe will have a positive impact on my students' learning and their overall progression in my classes.
