My Students

My students have very big hearts and truly make do with what they have. For some, school is their safe haven from extremely poverty stricken and violent homes. My students are in a very low income community. They are kind and loving but may not get all the things they need. I have more girls than boys in the group I have now, and they are very helpful. I have really gotten to know these students well in the last few months. I have already learned that I have children who come from needy families. Some of my children come from split families where they may or may not see one or both parents. I am very lucky to be able to touch these kiddos lives. They are very creative and love to be able to explore their learning world through my classroom.

Each child in the class has his or her own unique personality that has really brought our community together.

They are very creative and are starting to really enjoy the academic world and are improving every day.

My Project

A horseshoe table would be a wonderful addition to the classroom because it will help me have access to all the students in my guided reading group. Right now we are working at a rectangular table which makes things challenging when I need to view each child quickly. It will also allow students more space to work as well as give them privacy with their work because of the design. A horseshoe table and chairs will give my classroom a bit more space as well which will create a more flexible movement pattern in the classroom. The colorful chairs will be fun for the students and make them more willing to come to group.
