My students love to read! They come from various backgrounds but they all share the love of reading. We need a variety of higher level books for my students to continue to grow. I have a wide range of books but I need more to challenge them. With the number of students in my classes, my higher level books are being checked out very quickly. Therefore, many are settling on easier books since that is what they can get their hands on.
My school is a true neighborhood school.
All students live within a 2 mile radius of the school. Some walk, ride bikes, skateboard or get dropped off by car. Approximately 25% of the students come from military families. We have an Anchor for Life program at our school to help the transition for military students moving. We also have 35% of the students come from low income families.
Students spend all day sitting in hard chairs. They tend to wiggle, slouch, and curl up in their chairs. It is very easy to then zone out since you have worked really hard to make yourself comfortable in the hard chairs.
When you have to pay attention to what your body is doing, then you will also focus on the instruction.
I would like to get them seating that will make them sit up more and help them focus. I am requesting WALKI ball chairs with feet to help with the wiggles and getting students to sit straight up. The second item I am requesting is the portable lap desk. Many students love to work on the floor but find it challenging to keep everything neat. These 2 simple items could mean the world of difference.
