I teach at a diverse school; students are diverse both culturally and economically. Almost one half of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. At my school, parents take an active role in learning. Our PTA is the best, and try to help in any way they can!
My students are awesome 3rd graders who can't wait to learn each day.
They learn best through "hands on learning" and enjoy playing games, using manipulatives, and doing anything that is engaging and fun.
My students are so eager to please, so anything I can do to motivate them and make learning fun, will help them be successful in 3rd grade and beyond.
Speaking of making learning engaging and fun, I was lucky enough to receive a mounted projector for my classroom that was funded by our awesome PTA. I am excited to use it and it will allow me to do more interactive lessons with my Mimeo.
A new carpet will allow a large space for all students to learn.
They will be engaged in lessons, videos, and be comfortable getting up and down to interact with the whiteboard.
Having a new carpet will allow me to teach whole group lessons everyday. It will be a place that will be in close proximity to me so that I can ensure they are on task and focused on their learning. Because the carpet has "spots", everyone will have their own designated area and personal space.
