Mrs. Douglas from Beaverton OR is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students privacy folders for independent work time to help students block out distractions and regain focus in a busy, first grade classroom.
I teach first grade students in a Title One school in Oregon. I have students who do not have enough food to eat, money to buy new clothes and parents who are working two or more jobs to be able to keep their families in their homes. My school has a forty percent mobility rate, meaning that forty percent of the students that I meet on the first day of school will have moved on sometime during the year and I will have a different forty percent on the last day.
My students crave structure and predictability in their school day!
They want to come to school and know that I am going to stick to a routine and provide them with guidelines and structure that make them feel safe and comfortable taking risks. My students are funny, curious and active and have a thirst for knowledge.
My classroom consists of five, hexagon shaped tables that each holds six students. When all of my students are sitting at their tables, there is not much space between the kids.
My students need privacy partition folders to help give them a calming and quiet environment during assessments or independent work time in the classroom.
When we work on writing, reading, math or need to have a quiet space for assessments, these privacy folders will give my students an area to focus on their own work and not be distracted by others. The stand will be used to hold the privacy folders out of the way when we don't need them.
