Quiet Space

Help me give my students a quiet area in the classroom, in hopes that they can become more productive and less distracted.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. They are a joy to teach and will keep you on your toes with what they will say and do. I try every day to shine a light on the little things that they do that make them unique and individual. I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.

I teach very active 5th and 6th grade groups this year at a Title I school in rural Alabama.

Many of my students receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

In my 5th and 6th grade math classroom we already have many options for flexible seating. We have the wobble stools, regular stools, chairs, bouncy bands for chairs and places on the floor to work with a clipboard. I would love to add an option for a quiet space. This study carrel would be the perfect addition to our classroom. This study carrel would give any student who has a hard time focusing a place to go and be able to block out the distractions of others.

With less distractions the students will be able to learn more and become more successful in life.

Giving the students a place where they can work and be successful will lead to them having more pride in their work and a sense of accomplishment. The students who need this quiet place don't always get things finished in class because of the distractions, which leads to them thinking they can't do it. When in reality they can if they have the proper work space to complete their work.
