Our school is located in the inner city and is part of the districts magnet program. More than half of the students attending our school are socioeconomically disadvantaged. The students within our school come from many different cultural backgrounds.
My students are fourth graders.
They love to read and write and work hard every day to complete rigorous tasks to meet the challenge of high stakes state testing. They show true dedication to their tasks and amaze me daily.
We need these supplies to help my students to become even more successful in the classroom and in life!
My students love to work in different areas of my classroom. They often want to work on the floor rather then sitting in their desks. Our floors do not have carpet and it is hard for students to be comfortable working on the floor.
The front of our classroom is where our best relationship building and learning happen.
My students love to meet with one another and learn as a group. We often find that we do not have enough room for everyone on the small carpet at the front of the room.
This carpet will help our classroom by allowing us to all have a comfortable place to meet. The students will love working on the carpet by themselves, with partners or in a group.
