My Students

These students are first graders in Carlsbad, California, we are a multicultural classroom with so much to share with each other and learn from each other.

In my first grade classroom, we continually explore, inquire, communicate, collaborate, experiment, practice, create and grow!

I am so proud to be a part of their foundation and help inspire our future in these great little minds! They are all so excited to learn each day and give their best in our classroom community, as well as in the strong school wide community we have built.

My Project

In my classroom, our carpet activities build a strong classroom community and focus students' attention. A carpet with visible personal space markers will help my first grade students know where to sit so that they can focus best on the lessons and activities. This carpet will save much time throughout the day, as I will not need to direct or redirect where to sit each time we transition. The lessons and activities that take place on the carpet are an essential component to the learning experiences for my first graders.

Learning personal space and having personal space is a critical part of social and emotional development during the early years of school and it provides an immeasurable amount of success for the student, the teacher, and most importantly the community that we build in our safe classroom.

Time and energy will be saved, as well as learning to value personal space and safety in our big classroom family. We can focus on learning and continue to build a caring classroom community with responsible, confident people.
