My students need this Childcraft chalk spots seating rug to use in our whole group setting to add a bit of comfort from our hardwood flooring. The shelves are needed to separate and organize our stations.
Our school was sadly flooded during hurricane Harvey. After a year of being displaced and separated to 2 nearby schools, we are overjoyed to be reunited and returning to our home campus this year. However, we won't have the same necessities that we used to have as we start over.
In our classroom, we are a community of lifelong learners and everyone is an integral part of our "family," no matter their background.
Teaching kindergartners is such a unique and wonderful experience. We have children who have never been in a school setting before and are just learning how to be a student, so inspiring them to love school and learning is my every day goal. My kiddos are learning how to read, write, count, and apply social skills. From ESL to GT to low-income, we learn from one another and aspire to become our best selves.
This rug will be used daily for whole group lessons, circle time, story telling, and much more. The flexible seating is ideal for teaching students about personal space and organization, and will provide comfort from our hard flooring.
My students are more motivated to learn when they have a clear, defined space.
They make better choices and are more involved in group discussion.
The shelving units will serve to hold and organize our centers for both ELA and math. When students have a designated area where they know they can find materials, time is better managed and students feel more secure.
