Help Make a Difference

My students need a small group table where I can meet and work with them individually or with a small group of students that have the same learning needs.

My Students

I teach 1st grade at a Title I school that serves a diverse community of learners. The majority of the students at our elementary school are military dependents, low income, minorities, and/or English Language Learners. Our students come to school every day with smiling faces, ready to learn, grow, succeed, and one day break the cycle of the disadvantaged. To do this, these children need more resources than they currently have. I believe in all of my students and I am committed to their success. The children in my classroom are hardworking, kind, intelligent, and very deserving of new learning materials and resources. My students and I hope that you will find it in your heart to donate to their education and future success. We thank you for any and all donations! Every penny will make a difference for these children.

My Project

Having a designated small group table will make a huge difference in my classroom! Finally, my students and I will have a space to be able to meet for one-on-one instruction, meet in ability groups so I can work with students who are all on the same ability level, and have a place for students and me to privately conference. The shape of the kidney table will be much more beneficial than a regular rectangular table. While working with a group of students, the kidney shape makes it possible for all students to still be close to the teacher and other classmates. This makes students more engaged in the conversation, feel involved in the group, and makes it possible for the teacher to work with each student in the group closely and individually.
