Help me give my students comfortable chairs to sit on and enjoy reading books when taking turns at our classroom library and a designated writing table workstation specifically for the composition of different writings.
Our elementary school believes in fostering quality learning for all our students to ensure that at the end of elementary they are global citizens that are middle-high-school-college and work-ready!
This year I will teach 22, six and seven year old students considered as English Language Learners.
All of my students come from households within a low-income community. They have different challenges - economically, socially, physically, mentally and even language barriers. Despite the obvious challenges associated with low-income households, my students prefer to be present in our classroom every day and actively engage and participate in our learning community.
These 22 students have unique learning styles but are most challenged by the low levels of communication they command in the English language. This year we are looking forward to creating our learning environment to the most conducive safe learning space that encourages our class to actively engage in conversations, writing and listening to discourse in students first language and the English language.
My students and I are requesting financial support towards comfortable personalized seats for our classroom library. These seats will give each reader a private space away from other readers to enjoy their reading time at the library. The chairs also give a cozy feeling to our library just as the real public libraries which students visit during summertime.
Additionally, our class requests support for a designated writing table for our writing workstation for students to compose different types of composition.
Reading and writing are very important learning skills first graders. As English Language Learners (ESL), my students are encouraged to compose their thoughts to communicate if they feel shy or less confident to participate in conversations. Single comfy seats at the classroom library give my students a personal and private space to explore different books of interests without peer pressure.
