I work at a Title I school, which means a large percentage of our students are from low income families. I teach an amazing group of first graders. My students are always looking for ways to help others and are very concerned if something is bothering any of their classmates. We are like a family and their eagerness to help and care for others is so inspiring.
When I look at my students, I see such an eagerness to learn.
They are like little sponges. They are inquisitive and are always asking questions, wanting to know more.
A classroom library is always a popular place in the classroom and students love it! My students feel the same way about ours, but our classroom library needs a makeover! Our reading rug has unraveled and our reading bench is worn. We are in need of a new rug and more flexible seating options for our library. Our classroom library is used for independent reading, centers, a flexible seating area, and a calming corner for the students.
With a new rug and chairs, it will provide students a warm and inviting area to work and read.
We currently have a small reading bench, so the chairs will provide extra flexible seating for the students. Our carpet had to be thorn away, so we are in need of a new one. The new carpet is warm with natural colors to help promote a soothing and calm area. We work on positive ways to manage our emotions, so this rug would make the area a great place for my students to go who are struggling with negative emotions or need a break from the group. Many of my students are ADHD so these materials would also help them focus and regroup as well.
