A class that truly represents Brooklyn, my students are from a mix of cultures. Not only that, but my families chose to enroll their children in a dual language program. They are all committed to being bilingual and bi-literate in Spanish and English (some of the speak other languages as well).
My students are enthusiastic, curious, and caring, truly delightful!
They check in with each other and treat each other with respect. Each day, they come to school ready to learn.
We meet regularly on the floor to read books aloud, discuss mathematical concepts, solve problems in our community, and learn about the world around us.
Our meeting area is central in our physical space and a rug would set the tone for our meeting area and our classroom community.
Right now, we have bathroom mats to sit on or we can sit on the hard tile floor. The floor is uncomfortable and the bath mats move around when we wiggle. We would love a cozy, beautiful rug, so we can be more comfortable and focus on our ideas. Help us get a beautiful rug!
