My class is an amazing group of intelligent, creative, and driven Spanish/English dual-language immersion students.
They work extremely hard to achieve their goal of biliteracy and are very adamant about the “power of yet”.
They might not understand a concept YET, but they WILL get there. This group of fifth graders is so bright, talented and kind. Although they are in such a transitional phase in their lives, they can still easily empathize with one another and be of an emotional support when needed. They never cease to surprise me with their abilities to grasp a difficult problem or assignment, engage in collaborative conversations and solve them together. They are such a tight knit group and have learned to use each other as powerful resources but I know if given the necessary tools, they will be capable of growing so much more!
My students are on a road to biliteracy and would benefit greatly with as many tools as possible. My classroom is in need for a better storage unit.
By providing a low shelf for math manipulates will allow my students more room to work collaboratively and wall space for charts and posters to support their learning.
We currently have a tall and bulky metal cabinet that does not allow students to access their materials on their own and takes up a lot of space that can be used in a better way. Please help my students by providing a classroom that is accessible and efficient for their learning. Thank you in advance!
