As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, I recognize that my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
I have the most incredible group of students this year.
They walk into my classroom every day full of life, ready to learn and excited for what is in store for them that day. They are a unique group that ranges from the overly exuberant to the shy and sweet.
My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over eighty percent receiving free or reduced-price lunches. They look forward to reading daily and need a safe, yet easily accessible place to store their books. They know I believe in them and they can do anything.
The classroom carpet is a common meeting place for my students and myself. Math and Number Strings concepts, Reading and Writing Mini Lessons, and stories are heard on the rug. Active learning takes place on the rug.
The classroom rug is that one special place where students feel welcome and students know that something new and exciting is about to take place!
The classroom carpet is a home inside a classroom, fostering learning, creativity, and friendship. A classroom carpet, will allow my students to have a chance to get out of their chairs and come together to learn up close and personal!
