My Students

My 5th grade students are an energetic and wonderful group of learners. They are always eager to learn new information and build on what they already know. They come into the building in the morning with smiles and are ready to go for the day!

My goal is to continue to create a space in my classroom for students to feel comfortable and feel free to learn.

I will have many different learning styles in my classroom this year. As a school, we like to provide students with an environment that makes them feel comfortable. When students feel most comfortable, I believe they do their best learning.

My Project

When students enter my classroom I want them to immediately feel comfortable and excited. Students spend more time in school that they do at home. I want to make sure when they are at school, they have a positive experience and that starts in our classrooms.

By adding little touches to make the classroom seem more calming and inviting, I think students will be more comfortable and therefore have a better learning experience.

We already have flexible seating in our classroom, but the items needed will continue to add a touch of home while still at school. The rugs will provide a little more cushion while students choose to work on the floor. The lamp will provide a more calming and comfortable environment as it will still light up the room, but in a more relaxed tone. The weathered wood paper will go up on a wall to provide a statement wall and will set the tone for the classroom. Overall, the items needed will allow students to feel more comfortable and more at home while they are still in school.
