I love working with my 5th graders! They are also so loving and kind. Most students like to stay in at recess because it’s cold out and I like to have them in creating time to get to know them and work with them one on one. I have a group of students that want to be successful but struggle at times. Even the ones that have some behavior problems have been flourishing in 5th grade and I am so excited to prepare them for middle school.
Currently we have no place where there is carpeting for students to sit on the floor and read or work in groups. I work in a low income school with 100% free or reduced lunch. I want an area in class that students can hang out in during recess or in small group time reading chapter books. I love to create an environment that is welcoming to students and feels like a place they want to be. This space would be for students during the academic activities, during recess time and during my after school program! I want to show my students how much I care about them by providing a great space for them!
