My Students

I teach in a dual language English/Spanish immersion program. I am the English teacher of 50 students, some are native English speakers and some are native Spanish speakers. In my classroom, students are learning the English language and they are becoming bilingual and biliterate learners. Students are working together on becoming culturally diverse as they collaborate on group projects and linguistic activities. English students gain confidence with the help of their native Spanish speaking peers and friendships are built in an accepting and diverse classroom.

My Project

With a classroom rug my students will have a richer environment to learn. There are many hours in the day and we do varied activities both in group and individual work. It is optimal for students to have both their desks and a rug to sit at throughout the day. Students can spread out during independent reading, work on group projects, and have rug spots to sit at during mini-lessons and whole group instruction. Students are often better able to concentrate when sitting at the rug for read alouds and Reading and Writing Workshop. A rug also offers alternative seating arrangement s for students require varied learning environments. A classroom rug creates more space to discover, community build, play and share.
