My Students

I am such a lucky teacher. Do you want to know why? Well I get to spend 7 hours a day/5 days a week with some amazing kids. These terrific ten year-old kids. They come to school each day excited and ready to learn. All this excitement is sometimes hard to contain so they have to move around. They have to get out of their seats, stretch and find somewhere else to work. This ¨somewhere¨could be at the back table or sitting on the floor with a buddy. They can bring their work, manipulatives and whatever they need to do the work.

My Project

The students in my homeroom start each day with a Morning Meeting, my students come to my room to learn math and science. Much of our time is spent working in small groups or with partners. Students love to get out of their assigned seats and spread out around the room. They often use clipboards and manipulatives to solve problems and conduct experiments.

My students need a 9 x 12 rug for our classroom.

I would really like to have a 9 x 12 classroom rug on which my students and I can have morning meetings, students can listen to a read aloud, I can provide direct instruction and my students can have a place to comfortably work independently.
