My Students

I have a group of 40, five and six-year-old African American students. These young children come from a low-income neighborhood with limited resources. Each of these students desperately want my full attention but in an overcrowded classroom, I can't fully give them what they want and need. Our school has had its finances cut a few years in a row and we are doing whatever we can to give our students the best education possible.

My students are full of joy, love, and excitement each day when they step into our classroom.

I know that my students are eager to learn new things because they always have so many questions about our day to day learning. I want to continue to instill that excitement in them so they can carry it with them throughout their school experience.

My Project

Often times my students like to work on the rug or within their own space away from the table group. It's difficult to do this because we don't have clipboards in which they can place their papers.

Students have accidentally poked holes in their work trying to write on their laps when they want to work in their own space.

These clipboards will give students a sturdy object to write on and allow them to feel as if they have a space in the classroom that might be a bit calmer or quieter than their tables.

We also do many whole group lessons in which students may work together on the carpet. Using the clipboards, everyone can have their own writing utensil and their own
