Let's Focus!

My students need privacy dividers so that they can focus during independent work and assessments; and a large timer to provide a visual of the time remaining to work.

My Students

In a crowded classroom, it can be hard to focus while working independently. My students need tools--dividers and a visual timer--to help them complete work on time!

My fourth-grade students live in an urban, low-income city comprised largely of immigrant families.

Many of my students speak a language other than English at home. Despite the challenges that they face, the students in my school are consistently eager to learn and enthusiastic about new and exciting learning opportunities. The fourth-grade students in my classroom represent a range of abilities and learning styles. Many of my students have not yet developed the skills needed to work efficiently on their own. It is important that they develop the skills needed to work independently--time management, focus, stamina, and sense of responsibility--before moving to middle school next year.

My Project

With 27 fourth graders in my classroom, it is getting a little crowded. Much of our learning is done collaboratively in groups, so the close-spaced desks are not a problem. However, there are certainly times when my students need to focus and work independently, and many are easily distracted by their peers sitting close by. Privacy dividers will allow my students to set up little "cubicles" at their desks so that they can focus on their work without being distracted. This is essential for working on a writing piece, taking an assessment, etc. Several of my students need reduced stimuli in order to focus, and the dividers will help them greatly. My students are also developing the ability to independently complete work in a timely manner. Many are not able to regulate their work pace appropriately--some rush through their work for fear of running out of time, while others work very slowly and do not finish. A visual timer will help all students track the time left to work.

The privacy dividers and visual timer will help my students develop the skills they need to work independently: stamina, focus, and time management.

These are skills they need to be successful for the rest of their lives!
