As a teacher from a school with a very diverse population with many students who are English Language Learners, some as immigrants or refugees, these students go through many challenges daily to just get to school. I am wanting my classroom to feel like a home away from home, so that they feel comfortable. Which allows them to stay focused and discover the best way for them to learn.
Our 8th grade team is made up of 91 wonderful students from all walks of life, just wanting a chance to make their place in this world.
Many of these students received free or reduced lunch based on their socioeconomic status or come from single family homes. In my room, I want to make learning fun and create life-ling learners, while preparing students for high school and higher education opportunities.
Allowing students to use flexible seating options, like exercise balls, saucers chairs, and wobble cushions is a daily activity in my classroom. During instruction I use project based learning and group work almost daily in my room for guided practice, which makes learning more fun and enjoyable for students. While the different seating options allow students the opportunity to discover their best learning environment on their own.
Your generous donation to our class project will improve the learning environment in my math classroom and improve my students attention and focus, plus increase students content understanding.
Students will be able to focus on their work and learn without distractions when they are in their own optimum learning environment. Please help me to create a open, welcoming environment that is conducive for ALL students to learn, not just SOME.
