Creating a Bright and Welcoming Classroom

My students need a carpet to sit on for morning meetings and lessons that is bright and inviting, as well as comfy pillows to make reading time more enjoyable around the room!

My Students

Our school is a small neighborhood school serving a diverse community of tightly-knit families. Many students face the challenges brought about from living in poverty. They are resilient, clever, compassionate, and absolutely delightful to work with.

My students are a deeply creative group who are eager to learn and full of dreams for the lives they will lead.

Within my classroom this year, we will focus on building a strong community of learners who support each other as they make mistakes, meet and surpass goals, and become more independent.

I strongly believe that each of my children will do amazing things with their life. It is my role to foster a love of learning, provide a safe space to explore and grow, and learn how to cope with the challenges life throws their way.

My Project

This year I will be new to second grade, and I want to be sure that my students and I have a welcoming space in which to build our classroom community. The room we will be in is in need of some color and softness to make it a more inviting learning location!

I picked a vibrant carpet for our main learning spot - we will gather there to begin each day with a fresh start in our morning meeting, and work together to expand their minds!

In addition, because I want to foster a love of reading, I selected an assortment of bright, soft pillows that students will be able to sit or lie on as they enjoy a book anywhere in the room.
