I teach kindergarten in a Chicago Public School where school funding has been an issue for many years. They are a diverse group of children that are learning and growing together.
My class is filled with unique personalities who come from different backgrounds.
My class is diverse in every sense of the word...economically, racially and academically.
They love to learn and share their ideas/stories. It is such a delight to see them when they realize they are learning to read, write and make sense of new topics.
My class needs a reading table. The table we use now is not a good fit for reading. It is rectangular and too short in height and length. We need a table that is circular so students can hear each other read and see each other when discussing a story or skill. They need more space at the reading table for when we do writing or when we use manipulatives to work on literacy skills. A kidney shape table will aid students in learning from one another and help provide the space necessary for literacy activities. This grant would support the reading development of my students.
