The whole school is brand new and beautiful, but now we are preparing for the 2nd year of being open. The hallways are bright and open for all the students to walk through every day.
My students are primarily from Spanish-speaking households within walking distance of the school.
Every morning we start our day with breakfast in the classrooms and then move on to our normal day. Breakfast and lunch are provided for all students to keep their brains focused.
My students do not like to sit at a desk for a long period of time. They are craving comfort. It would be great if we could get a big rug for students to sit on to do their work. If students are more productive sitting outside of the traditional seating, I do not want to stop them.
People who read for fun usually snuggle up to a good book.
It would be great if my students could get comfortable to read a good book. Some of my students want to sit on the floor and sprawl out. For these students, it would be great to have a comfortable personal space using a yoga mat.
My goal is to create lifelong readers. If I can do that by letting them be comfortable, that is a win for all of us.
