My students are from a low-income, high poverty inner city school district. My students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
While my students may face many daily challenges, their eagerness to learn is astonishing.
They come to school every day ready to learn their math facts, how to choose a correct book to read independently, to explore the world around them through science, and finally write about it all.
They amaze me every day with their new discoveries, even some I did not think of. It is an honor to work with them and if you were to take a simple glimpse into our room you would feel the same!
Having a centralized gathering area in my classroom is very simple, however it is lacking two very important necessitates.
Whole group instruction is a daily part of my students learning, but they are currently, sitting on a very old, well loved rug, and using a painted over chalkboard as their whiteboard.
Yes, my students have made do with these materials, but it is now time for them to experience a fresh start. Having a clean and inviting rug is just the start to great learning.
Incorporating a magnetic whiteboard is going to make my students whole group learning that more successful! I will be able to demonstrate using magnetic manipulative as well as the basic Expo Markers. It will also give my students more opportunities to come up and demonstrate their own learning to their classmates.
