My students are smart, curious, fun-loving, creative, hardworking, helpful, and kind. My 20 students represent countries all over the world, as well as learning levels from kindergarten to fifth grade. Some of my students need daily intervention while others need daily enrichment.
My school consists of about 1,000 students of diverse backgrounds and diverse learning abilities.
We have a growing population of ELL students and students for which we implement interventions in reading and math, as well as students needing enrichment to acquire success for their educational needs.
Our school does not receive Title I funding; therefore, the technology that we have in our classroom is limited and has to be funded through other means. Our school has an amazing administration and staff who are dedicated to meet each of these diverse needs. The environment of our school is warm, nurturing, and respectful.
I would like to create a comfortable classroom rug space where my students can sit and build community during morning meeting and sit during whole group lessons. My students engage in whole group learning for a good portion of their day. We start whole group math, reading, and writing at the rug each day. My rug will be placed in the center of the classroom near the board for a space to learn and grow.
Students will have a choice to do work in their seats or on the new rug.
I want my students to have different areas throughout the classroom where they can find their comfort zone and stay focused. This way they can stay engaged in their learning. Please help provide my students a rug that is inviting and clean so that they will have their own spot in the room and be able to learn the routine on the rug during whole group lessons.
