My Students

My students are bright, energetic, and fun loving children. They come from various social and economic backgrounds. This is the first learning experience for most of my students. The classroom is an inclusive setting, and the students have a variety of needs.

Each day in the classroom is a different day.

As they grow and change, I love to see how their personalities began to form. They are beginning to grow and change as individuals. The inclusive setting can be challenging at times, but it is very rewarding.

My Project

The students will benefit from a nice new rug. The students transition from their tables to the rug at least six times a day. The vibrant colors will make the room more inviting. The colorful rug will help the students recognize letters, numbers and shapes. The rug is used mostly during large group, The size of this rug will allow the students to spread out and utilize their own personal space. The students will be able to use their dry erase boards for literacy and math activities on their bright new rug. It will make learning more exciting. They are in need of new boards to complete daily learning activities. Our current makers are fading and we could use bright and shining markers.
