My students are so eager and excited about learning! They are 2nd graders, 7 years old turning 8. They come from all types of families, all types of backgrounds, and possess all types of learning styles. They amaze me with their abilities and darling personalities every day. I love these students and my job as their teacher!
My students entered this year with lower test scores, shorter attention spans, and more individual needs than any other class I have previously taught.
I really feel this is due to the effects of Covid 19. When this group of students was in kindergarten, their year abruptly changed from in-person learning to remote learning. When they were in first grade, all communication took place through a mask.
I am hoping this will be a year of extreme academic growth as well as a year of personal growth. I am trying my best to help students love school, love others, and love themselves and their abilities.
Covid 19 has changed the way students share their space, how they communicate, and how they learn. It has made students aware that life is fragile and unpredictable. It has also helped students see the benefits of in-person learning and the benefits of social interaction.
A new, colorful classroom rug would provide a comfortable space where my students could work and grow together.
This rug would be a place for them to share their ideas and learn from one another. A rug provides warmth to a classroom and a space where we can all be together.
