My Students

I am a new teacher at a Title l school. We have a growing percentage of 58% free or reduced-price lunch for students. Our school provides breakfast for all students every morning. I have a handful of students that are provided with a backpack of food every Friday to feed their family for the weekend, so what can I do?

I try my best every day to keep my students engaged, motivated and to make sure they leave school knowing that I care about them.

I leave a ukulele in my classroom, and we learn our reading strategies through singing songs. I grab their attention through music. My students are setting daily behavior goals for themselves, and these goals are allowing them to feel in control of their own learning! It has really been amazing to see my students grow and become more confident in themselves!

I feel very blessed to be a part of this school, to make an impact on these young lives, and to be able to reach out and make my classroom better than what it is. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read over my project.

My Project

I already have some options for seating in my room such as a floor desks and exercise balls. I would love to create more options to give my students more choices.

When students are given choices, they feel empowered.

That is just what my students need. They need the chance to make choices and consider other people's ways to and needs I'm the classroom.

With more options, there will be less hurt feelings and more relaxed learning in my room. Students won't be forced to sit in a chair if they have more choices. Bean bags and floor seats are a couple other options that I would like to provide for them.
