My Students

My students are curious and diverse learners who love to read and work independently as well as with a partner. They are fortunate to be part of the Dual Language program at our school where they receive instruction in English and Spanish.

My students enjoy opportunities to be able to move about the classroom as they are exploring and learning about the world around them.

They are fun, motivated, and love to collaborate and communicate with each other as they work to meet their goals.

My Project

Our classroom needs a comfortable space to sit during literacy instruction, read books, and work collaboratively. My students enjoy being able to move about the room and get comfortable while they are engaged in their learning.

My students sometimes feel left out when there is not enough space for them on our current rug.

A new classroom rug will replace one that is old, very worn, and does not provide enough space for everyone. With a new rug students will have better opportunities to engage in peer conversations throughout the day. It will provide a cozy space for listening to read alouds as well as independent reading.
