My Students

I will be teaching a group of 12 students that will be in their first year in a public school. These students are part of a school that the parents and community fought to create in their community. We were approved by the state to open this year. Our school values include love, purpose, community, identity, and excellence. We also value and include a social and emotional learning component in the school.

My little ones are 7 boys and 5 girls.

Unfortuntately, the community these students live in has endured a lot of violence. One of my students just lost his mother and grandmother due to violence. I want to create a classroom that is a safe haven for them and that they can feel loved.

My Project

Reading is huge in my classroom and I want my students to have a great selection, as well as, a way to see the books available to them. I want the library area to be inviting. The Tot Tutors Kids Book Rack Storage Bookshelf, will be used to display the books in our library area. It will make the library nicer and inviting. It will create a beautiful and organized layout of the books for the theme of the month.

The library is a very important essential to our classroom and I want to create a love for books as my students will be learning how to read this year.

We don't have a selection of science books. The books on turtles are apart of a science unit I have planned. We will be learning about the life of turtles, how they eat, grow, and live.

I also have included a play carpet rug. I would like a rug for them to be able to play on the floor. We don’t have a carpet so they can’t play on the floor.
