My students are energetic, eager, and creative first graders. Our school is a small Title I school that is in a rural area. Most of my students are from low income households; they even need basic school supplies. Many of my students have not been outside of the small rural community they live in.
I strive for my classroom to be a nurturing, loving environment in which my students feel safe to explore educational opportunities, ask questions, and express themselves.
Creating a family environment for my students is essential to me because I have several students that do not come from traditional homes. Some of them live in foster homes and others are raised by single parents or even grandparents.
Please help me provide a table and seat covers for my first grade students. These items will help foster a collaborative learning environment for our classroom.
We currently have individual desks, and my desire is for students to work in collaborative groups because I feel learning is a cooperative endeavor.
My goal is to eventually have all tables in my classroom so that kids are not isolated at individual desks. The tables keep the room more organized and promote a family feel.
I am requesting seat sacks for my students so they will have their own personal space for their belongings.
