Help me give my students materials and resources to make the classroom comfortable. A lot of my students need an outlet for sensory and movement flexibility. We currently do not have a rug in the classroom.
I currently work with about 500 students, grades k-4. As a Content Literacy teacher, students explore topics in science. They are diligent and strive to build their academics. In my classroom we work on academic topics, character education, 21st century skills, and being a community of learners. Our classroom is like our second home.
I work with students that come from low-income neighborhoods.
They all come with diverse prior and background knowledge. Not all students come with the same experiences into the classroom. Our school has many students who are English Language Learners. They are working on the necessary skills to be successful. I am currently working on expanding their science and social studies knowledge.
Students love to explore, have opportunities to be curious, and use manipulatives. My goal is for them to push their boundaries of academia by learning new science content. We do a lot of small-group work which allows them to build character education and learn to work with others.

These materials will benefit all my students who need comfort in my classroom. They need flexible seating arrangements. The kick bands will help them release their jitters. We currently do not have a rug for students to meet for whole-group instruction and pre-teaching vocabulary and new concepts. I work with 500 students each week, and I want to have a place where they can sit on the floor and learn. I work with students k-4, as well as a group of students who are on the autism continuum. My classroom is an outdated computer lab with not a lot of moving space for my students. They need a place for us to meet and talk about new lesson topics. The foam cushions will be a perfect addition to the classroom.
