My Students

When students enter our room I want for each student to have a positive and excited learning environment . One of my favorite quotes is: If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn. -Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Estrada

My 1st grade student are curious, loving and creative learners.

Each day as they enter the room they are very excited to learn and to experience new things. Each student brings a uniqueness to our class that it allows for them to work together and respect one another. With the new carpet this will allow for students to come into the class and have a meeting place for morning message and our community building spot. Throughout the day the students will be engaged on the carpet with their book bags sitting elbow to elbow in a very comfortable cozy place. Also having discussions of their finds with a partner discussing the characters, setting and plot within their books.

My Project

When students enter our room they will know that they each have a special spot that they will be able to learn and engage with their classmates. On the carpet my students will participate in book talks,as well as community building and morning meetings. My students on a daily basis are partner reading and discussing their findings from their text and the carpet will allow for a nice and cozy place for this to happen. As you walk into my classroom I want it to be warm and inviting for students and parents to see that they are in a safe and excited to be in their learning environment.

My students need a classroom carpet area where we can come together for whole group lessons, partner reading, and a classroom meeting place throughout the day, This area will allow students and parents to enter our room and have the room feel safe and positive learning environment.
