My Students

When you ask most school age children what their favorite part of the day is they’ll most likely say it’s recess! It’s the time they get to run and play with their friends, play on the play structure and participate in fun games. My hope is to bring that same kind of enthusiasm into our classroom. My students, just like others, want their classroom to be warm, inviting and with plenty of learning activities to keep them saying “I love being at school”!

While all my students come from families with strong values and deep culture, many rely on their classroom to be a place with comforts not always found at home.

Comforts like cozy reading nooks, a library full of high interest books and in some cases technology devices they use for research. Therefore it’s my job to make sure our classroom is well equipped so they come in excited to learn and grow.

My Project

My students love working together in a space where they can stretch out and relax. While we spend some of the day at desks, carpet time gives my students a flexible seating alternative. They can work with their classmates during group projects, or relax with a good book! This carpet is padded so it’s extra comfy! We also gather on our carpet during community circles. It’s during this time that we build strong bonds with one another, while solving problems in a safe effective environment.

Keeping our classroom neat and organized is essential for a safe learning environment.

These plastic bins will help us do just that!
