My students need finger puppets to track their words while reading and the magnetic letters to create creative sentences. They also need flexible seating options for an engaging class environment.
As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, the students in my class are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous. They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical."
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me.
I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
The finger puppets will be used for students to track their reading in a fun and engaging way. The magnetic letters will help my students build words and sentences. With the flexible seating my students who are wiggly will be more engaged and focused. These products will help build a classroom environment that is fun and exciting.
These materials are a necessity in creating a welcoming environment that will better help encourage my students to learn in a unique way.
It is important that my students have an environment that is interactive and that is a place they want to be everyday.
