My Students

They are very hard working and passionate about learning. We are a small family in my classroom. My classroom is blocked,

which means that I have 48 students in total.

They are smart and full of energy. My students are part of a Title 1 school, the majority of them come from low-income families.

My students are very dedicated to learning. Many times they have asked me if we could get a carpet like the other teachers to sit as a whole group and that is one of the reasons why I ask the help of many of you. In our classroom, we believe that if we are comfortable we can learn anything and everything.

My Project

This carpet will help my students feel comfortable when doing whole group, community circle and when reading independently. In our classroom, we have the carpet which is very uncomfortable after a couple of minutes. Many times my students choose where they want to work and I believe that having this carpet would help them as a form of flexible siting.

Flexible siting is very important in my classroom.

When students have more options to sit around the classroom it helps them concentrate and get more involved in their learning. I am hoping that if we have a carpet it will give them more options of where to sit when they get to choose their own work space.
