My students are eager to come to school everyday to learn and be with their friends. From day one, we build community so that our classroom is a safe and welcoming environment.
Most of my students come from low-income families, receive free or reduced price lunch and speak English as a second language.
In fourth grade, my students are learning an amazing amount of content but they are also learning to be successful human beings by working together with one another, solving problems and learning from their mistakes. Thank you for helping to make a difference in their lives!
I am always looking for non-fiction reading material for my students and "Time for Kids" magazine is a great resource. It will provide students with information on current events and open the door to conversations about what is happening in the world around them. "Time for Kids" also has a digital component that I can implement with our classroom Chromebooks. Having both of these resources at the ready, will save time in planning and preparation as I will need less time to search for articles for my students.
In addition to the magazines, I'm requesting more flexible seating options to allow my students a choice in where they learn best in my classroom.
Having three yoga balls will help some of my wiggly learners sit for lessons easier than they would in a traditional chair. Three lap desks will allow students to work more comfortably on the carpet.
Learning doesn't look the same way for all students. It is my goal to create a comfortable environment for all students to find their own space.
