Imagine moving to a new country. You walk into a classroom and you may not have ever had any formal education before. You have never read or written and you have this smiling teacher talking to you in a language you don't understand. These are some of the students I teach every day.
I have a very diverse classroom full of students eager to learn!
My students come from all around the world, from many different and often difficult situations. Since there are multiple languages spoken in my classroom, kinesthetic and visual learning is extremely important. My students inspire me every day to engage them in hands-on activities that will develop their ability to think, communicate, and work with each other.
In my opinion, the most important thing that I do in my classroom is build relationships with my students. One of the ways I love to do this is through a daily morning meeting. Not only is this a great way for me to get to know my students but it's a great way for them to get to know me and their classmates.
Morning Meeting is such valuable time for us to come together and start the day on a positive note.
Having this rug for our classroom will give us a comfortable meeting spot. I also have a fully flexible seating classroom so students will be able to use this spot to complete their work.
