My students are, without a doubt, challenged. Many are economically disadvantaged with little parental support. Some struggle with emotional needs. Most have been displaced at some level by the flood following Hurricane Harvey. Several students are still displaced from the hurricane. However, they are beginning to live life again. School is a safe haven for many of my kids.
They deserve some personal space to chill!
My students would enjoy a place to relax and read during their advisory period each day.
My students have over an hour each day to utilize doing homework, reading, and writing. Since my classroom is a computer lab, I am working hard to make it more versatile so that areas around the room not taken up by computers can be used for pair reading, individual homework spaces, and private journaling.
These big kids love their own space.
Placement of a small carpet has helped some already, but another space would allow more students to move away from computer tables and be comfortable while reading and working on homework.
Why should all the little kids have the fun learning environments? Help my students make the most of their time during advisory.
