Inquisitive minds, warm hearts, helpful hands, and sponges for brains. These are just some of the ways you could describe the students that walk through our classroom doors each day.
Our students, with limited English skills, live in a high-poverty, big-city community where the goal is to help them blossom into productive learners and speakers.
Their willingness to work hard and achieve is evident in all that they do. They may come from homes where paying the rent and buying food is the priority. Therefore, it is so important for us to support them in as many ways as we can to give them every chance to succeed.
My class will benefit from using Chair Socks on the legs of their chairs to stop them from squeaking and scraping as they move. Having a class of about 30 students invariably means that there will be a number of children who wriggle, fidget, bump, or bounce at some point in the day.
Having a class full of general and special education students who are eager to learn means they all have different learning styles including kinesthetic/moving, touching/tactile and seeing/visual.
Lowering the noise level in class will prevent the cringe-worthy distraction that happens when chairs get scrapped along the floor.
