My students need some comfort in their classroom with a rug and couch. Help make my students love where they spend their days by making it an inviting, comfortable, & happy space!
As teachers, we often wonder how we can differentiate for our students as they are all unique in their needs. The question I ask myself daily is, "How can I meet the needs of my students without many materials and resources?" This is especially the case in my classroom, and school, as there are a wide range of levels seen on an everyday basis. Within my school, 100% of students receive reduced or free lunch and come from low income neighborhoods.
As research states, in order to best meet the needs of our students, a variety of resources are needed.
Specifically, I have a room of 5th graders, most staying in the regular education classroom throughout the day, and a few receiving special education supports. As for my students who do not receive pull-out supports, I see a variety of levels from below grade level, on grade level, and above grade level.
My classroom is currently a brown, hard tone with a cold, hard floor and does not scream “happy learning!” the way a classroom should. Often times, people don’t think 5th grade classrooms need to be bright, comfortable, and inviting like they are in most K-2 classrooms. I disagree. I want my students to love their classroom so that they are able to thrive in a nurturing and safe space. By helping me get this carpet and couch, the students will feel comfortable and “cozy”, which will make them feel great walking into class everyday. Students will be able to read on the carpet, participate in discussions, and engage with eachother in a flexible way.
