My Students

I teach humanities in a school of fifth and sixth graders. With a population of 1500 or so, I have 46 that come in and out of my room each day. My students are exposed to a vast number of technology applications and programs throughout the day. They are intelligent, funny and straightforward individuals who most definitely speak their minds.

My students are innovative, outspoken and creative.

Each one ready to accept the challenges that come with going to school.

My Project

Throughout the day, students are coming and going from my classroom. When we are not working as a group, my students like to work independently throughout the room. This includes independently reading at times. Several students work better when having the option to learn or read when sitting on the floor or in more comfortable seating.

Having a rug so everyone can meet and learn would be very helpful concerning group work.

Having chairs away from the group can also be helpful for those students who struggle to work with others and for those who need space at times of frustration. They will be very beneficial for my classroom. These are areas in my room that I lack and need! Please help give these kids an inviting place to learn!
