I teach 35 amazing fourth graders at an elementary school in Long Beach, CA where 90% of our students are low income. Our students face a variety of challenges outside of school and my goal is to create a 21st century learning environment where students not only incorporate 21st century skills such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity, but also feel comfortable and safe in the classroom while doing so.
I want my students to feel comfortable within our classroom in order to help them become 21st century learners.
To do this we need items to encourage organization and allow for a comfortable learning environment.
The items I chose for my class are chair sacks which will help students keep the tops and insides of their desk organized creating a clean and safe learning environment.
Seat sacks are student friendly storage solutions for primary grades.
Desks are difficult to keep organized and work can get lost or ruined, despite efforts to prevent this. The seat sacks I have selected are machine washable and sturdy enough to last for years to come. This project will benefit my school for a long time.
As an educator, it is my job to ensure that all of my students have the clean and safe learning environment that they need in order for them to be successful. My students are an amazing group of kids who deserve only the best.
I also enjoy making learning fun and exciting and most of all incorporating real life situations to math concepts such as fractions. I would like pizza boxes so that my students can create pizza fractions while learning how to make equivalent fractions. When students are having fun, and understanding how they can apply what they are learning in real world situations, they gain a deeper understanding of the concept being taught. Help me make learning about fractions fun and exciting for my students!
