My students attend a school in a high poverty and crime rate neighborhood in Nevada. My school is a Title I, Tier III school where 100% of the students receive free breakfast and lunch every day. Many students also receive a food bag for the weekend. Most of the students live with their families in apartments or homes and struggle with where they will be living in the next week. Regardless of their at home situation, my little learners come to school ready to lead and learn.
A colorful learning carpet gives more of a comfortable feel. There is nothing better than to see students from different backgrounds, feel welcomed and ready to learn when they are invited to sit at a colorful carpet. I believe a classroom should have a specific space for each child to practice respect, act responsibly, work hards towards their goals, and stay safe.
This will make a difference in my students' school lives by providing the necessary space to engage learning with their peers while on the floor.
This includes growing their brains through whole group lessons, listening to stories, and partner talks.
