My students come to school every day excited and eager to try new things and to be brave learners. We know it can get messy, that we may make mistakes, but we always do our best and learn from whatever happens. My class is exceptional because of it's immense diversity: our school joins together low-income and upper-middle class neighborhoods!
Because of this unique situation, we have students of every nationality, religion, race, and family makeup.
We have special needs children and English Language Learners. Also because of this, we sometimes have a disparity between accessibility of resources, such as technology or school supplies.
A lot of our students have a tough homelife and many of our kids need to be on a free/reduced lunch program or a backpack program to have food on the weekends. On top of this, we had Harvey last year, and the turmoil that it brought. These kids are resilient and brilliant and they all deserve the best opportunities and education we can give them.
These items will complete my room re-tooling. The room was organized but not efficient for my class this year. We are much more active and need to move! So, I decided to adjust to my students and rethink the way our room works.
Big books will be easily seen and accessible from the new organizer, the Listening Center will make it much easier to use our books on cd and our Ipads, the Lego baseplates will allow us to build STEM creations together, and the book holders will hold up our felt boards for a much more effective Work on Writing center.
These items all together should make the room work for us all!
