I love working at a Title I school. Low income, English Language Learners are the best students I could ask for. They are eager and ready to learn. Many of the students are being raised in single-parent homes, a few live in shelters or are homeless. Over 85% of the class receive free/reduced breakfast and lunch. However, from the moment the first bell rings, we focus on our growth and potential in each other.
Despite challenges the students may face, in our classroom, they work hard and strive to reach the expectations we have set in our classroom.
Reading, writing, and math are only part of the learning of our day. I round out the days of the school week teaming with our Reading Buddies and STEM Buddies to give them as much enrichment as possible. They like to move and be challenged throughout their day. They thrive with lots of positive attention. I do my best to offer experiences to keep my students engaged.
I encourage my learners to take charge of their learning. They do this by choosing where and who they work next to. The Flex-Space Comfy Floor Seats will allow the students to get comfortable on the floor. They love the opportunity to choose where they sit and many choose to work on the floor. I would love for them to sit in comfort as they produce their highest quality work.
The low table and backrests in the Flex-Space Collaborative Floor Work Space Bundle is a perfect addition to our classroom flexible seating environment.
The scholars in class love to work in groups in a cozy setting. This table and chair space will allow the setting they are looking for to promote their best work.
As my students are taking charge of their learning, they use Leader In Me binders to hold their goals and aspirations. These binders will find their home in the Flex-Space 3-Shelf Binder Storage Center.
