A Place Where Students Can Invent Their Future
My students need a classroom carpet to sit on during instruction time and STEM activities for a hands-on science experience.
I am a new teacher in a low-income school district. Our school is located in the heart of three income based projects. Most of my students are from single family homes with only one income. Despite the many challenges they face, I will provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are curious, eager to learn, and excited about school.
They like to be independent, create things, and love story time. All of my students receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. My student's family has a hard time getting school supplies for their children, due to the limited income in the household. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". My students look forward to coming to school where it is safe and an exciting lesson is waiting to be taught. My goal is to help them reach their fullest potential and make learning fun. I encourage my students to go home and share what they have learned with their siblings, family, and friends.
The classroom carpet will be used everyday during our calendar time, read aloud, whole group instruction, Smart board lessons, etc. The students will enjoy having an alternate working area away from their desk. They will enjoy the STEM activity center, as it will allow them more hands on learning.
Today, STEM means creating learning environments that allow students to be more active.
Whenever that happens, students are engaged in their own learning. There’s no manipulation in getting students active, either, it just happens. The outcome is that students better remember what they’ve learned when they are engaged in the process, and not passive by-standers.
