I teach fourth grade in a title one school in Florence, SC. The majority of my students I teach are from low income and broken families lacking educational support at home. These students crave learning and knowledge of anything new I present to them. Therefore it gives me an even greater joy to teach them and foster their love of learning. My classroom is the one place I see their joy come out. Each day I send them home, I know they may not receive reinforcement of skills I have taught them. Therefore, the time I have with them is so important! They love having opportunities to have hands on learning experiences.
My daily goal is to: Give life to learning and growing minds in an enthusiastic and engaging learning environment!
Many of my students come from low income families and come to school with very little or no school supplies. Having basic school supplies will provide what they need to participate.
I am also very excited to say my classroom will be tiled this year and therefore we need a nice big rug for us to gather on the floor for classroom discussions and lessons.
This school year I am implementing more flexible seating options for when children need help focusing in a location other than their desk. Providing this kind of environment will help me better meet my students' needs.
The majority of the students I teach have never left their city. Therefore, the idea of other countries and continents is difficult for them to grasp simply due to their lack of exposure. Having a globe will help my students visualize the geographical location of different countries and more easily understand as well as the abstract idea of how we experience seasons when we study the earth's rotation.
