My Students

My strudents come to school every day eager to learn. We greet each other every morning with a smile and a hug. When they enter the room they know that learning will be taking place that day.

Our school is a Title I school that suffered extensive damage and loss from Hurricane Harvey.

A large majority of our students are not afforded the exposure or opportunities that other school's students are afforded. Therefore, when given the opportunity to experience a new twist in learning they become very excited about it.

My Project

No two students are the same, therefore they learn in many different ways. I am requesting the standing desk because some students prefer to stand as opposed to sitting. I have several students who stand and the desks are higher and they won't have to bend over to write making them more comfortable. The bed risers will also be used to raise some of the desks. By having these items they will provide a diverse way of learning in my classroom. The bean bag seating will provide the students with a more relaxed approach to learning. A lot of my students enjoy sitting on the floor working and that's where the floor cushions will be utilized. The iPads will be used for doing computer programs, projects, and reading books. A large number of my students do not have access to technology in their homes, therefore I'm trying to allow them the opportunity to use technology while at school. The table will be used for small group instruction, as well as doing group projects. The mobile organizer will be used for organizing papers.

Every Student is unique in their own way, and they should be given the opportunity to take ownership of where they want to learn.

I'm trying to allow them this opportunity, but I need the tools to give them a choice. By donating to my project you will afford my students the opportunity to have a voice in how they learn.
