My students come from low income families. During the school day, my students are eligible for the free breakfast and free lunch program. And as sad as it may seem, sometimes the only meals they eat during the day are at school.
My students are very enthusiastic about coming to school and learning each and everyday despite the hardships that they may face.
Our school has only been opened for two years. We serve students in grades 4-8 and gifted and talented students as well. For a lot of my students, their second language is English; Spanish being their native language. Despite my students facing many hardships in and out of the classroom, I look forward to providing them each and everyday with a safe learning environment and giving them the knowledge and experiences that they can take with them as they move through their educational career to accomplish their dreams.
The materials that I have requested, the carpet and the comfy seats will give my students a very comfortable reading experience. These different seating options will give my students the option when reading or even working independent to make the choices that will work best for them.
During our reading workshop students are given the option to move around the room.
Students do make very good choices when it comes to finding a seat. With these comfy seating pods and carpet, students will be more comfortable when reading.
Because my students come from a low-income neighborhood, at home there might not be a quiet, cozy spot for them to read and enjoy a good book. I would like to give my students a comfy, cozy environment where they can relax and enjoy their books.
