My Students

The students in my class come from a wide range of demographics. We are historically a white farming community that is quickly changing. The majority of the students have not traveled out of state, yet alone out of the country. They are narrow minded in their thoughts as most are generations have lived in the same town. Economically, we have over 30% qualifying for free or reduced lunches. Many of the students come from working single family homes whom do not get support at home.

My Project

I would like to buy some pillows to go with my theme of Lake Living since all our stories are somehow connected to water. The pillows will allow the students to work comfortably on the floor. This will create a warm, inviting atmosphere where the students are excited to come and learn.

I also need headphones for my students to wear to listen to stories independently.

We also are doing Actively learn comprehension quizzes and many of the comprehension skills are videos. The majority of my students do not have their own headphones. These are vital to my curriculum in the classroom.
