My Students

My fifth grade students are very special to me for many reasons. They are very independent, full of energy, and passionate young learners. Being independent and having a love for learning are very important assets that I like to instill in my students since they will be going to the middle school next year in which being independent and passionate will help them thrive and succeed. My students are in a fast paced learning environment and organization is key to success.

Unfortunately, many of our students are limited to the bare minimum and they need to feel comfortable in the classroom, having the necessary tools, equipment, and materials to keep them engaged and successful.

A majority of our students in our Title 1 school, come from low income families with limited resources due to our small rural community. My students are caring, energetic, and full of life! I want them to be successful and have the materials and support that they need in order to be life long learners.

My Project

My fifth grade classroom has very old and worn desks that have been used for a number of years. The desks are all different sizes and some are too small for our students. Many of the desks are missing screws and are peeling on the top. My students and our little classroom are growing and changing. They are in need of something new, bright, colorful, and comfortable.

Having new tables in the fifth grade will be a wonderful addition to our classroom, because they will provide my students with more support and allow them to fit comfortably under them and have ample room for their class materials, while meeting all of their individual needs.

The classroom tables will fit our fifth graders better, because they are growing and are the largest in our school. Many students feel uncomfortable in our smaller desks, that are low to the ground and squeak when they move around. The bright colors will liven up the classroom and make it enjoyable for the students to sit, learn, perform activities, and science experiments. This will also meet some of our students who have special needs to have room to feel organized and comfortable and work closely with their peer buddy. The students will also be able to look at different Science experiments and activities such as our STEM/Discovery kits. There will be ample room on the tables for the students to have the space they need. We also need some laundry washer pods to make sure other items in our classroom are clean and fresh, for those in need.
