My Students

My students have a true range of abilities both academically and socially. They are kind, caring, and have a profound sense of humor. Everyone in the classroom wants to learn, although the “how and where” looks quite different for each of them. They are excited to be at school, extremely motivated, and have a passion for learning.

My Project

To help my students learn amid the pandemic, I would like to provide 3 different centers in my classroom, two for collaboration and one for relaxation. They have missed the opportunity of learning to work together as teams for all different problem-solving skills. Each designated area would be defined by one of the area rugs. The rugs will give them a perimeter to work within and also make it easier than sitting on the hard cold floor. Another area is at our hexagon table that seats 6 where the flexible seating - the stools requested would be utilized. These areas will be used to do hands-on experiments, puzzles, and the new manipulatives-stem bins listed below.

I have found that during the pandemic students need time with each other and then they need time to work in solitude.

This is where the 3rd area will be: "chill-out" and a relaxing reading area. The rug and bean bags will be a calming center where they can reflect and work in solitude and/or curl up with a good book. Since many of my students don't have the internet at home I am encouraging their adventures to be immersed in enjoyable literature.

These materials that I am requesting will allow our students to work in centers, collaborate with their peers, enjoy flexible seating and have a calm place to retreat. Please consider the request so I can make an impact on my classroom and my wonderful students.
