My students are hard-working young men and women. They are creative thinkers and desire the opportunity to be provided with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
They like to get up and move around the room; they love to read and enjoy engaging math activities.
Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.
The rug will be used for the students to gather for Math meetings, in front of the Smart Board. The class will meet at the there and go over the days lesson, before starting group work. Meeting together on the carpet will allow the students to focus the teacher and group rather and allows them to get up from their desk and enjoy the room in a different way. The students will also be able to have a comfortable reading corner with this carpet. Without, a rug we are sitting on the cold tile floor, not a ver inviting place to be.
