My Students

I have twenty-six, enthusiastic learners in my class who are eager to come to school on a daily basis despite the many challenges they face at home.

Our Title I school is located in a low socioeconomic part of South Los Angeles and all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

My students are all English language learners, some of whom are also struggling with learning disabilities.

My students come from hard-working families that have to work two jobs in order to provide basic necessities. They can't always provide the technology to help their children master the crucial foundation skills that will make them long life learners.

My Project

My students need a new classroom rug where they gather many times daily for mini-lessons for math and Language and read-alouds. It is important in my kindergarten classroom that we meet on the rug because it helps build classroom community and keeps the students focused. They are also able to turn and talk with their neighbor about what we are learning. This is especially beneficial for English Language Leaners who may not be ready to share just yet to the entire class. When it is not used for whole group time my students love to sit on the rug to read or to use blocks during choice time.

Our current classroom rug is over 10 years old.

It has various "unknown" stains where my student sit on. I am concerned with the cleanliness of the rug because of its age. I would love to give my students a new rug that they enjoy sitting on every single day.
