Stitching Students

My students need knitting needles and yarn to learn basic stitches and complete projects.

My Students

As a teacher in a Title I school where 100% of students qualify for free and reduced lunch, my students are faced with several 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 outside of the regular school day.

My students love learning new things and gaining new experiences.

Many of them are being raised in single parent households and do not have access to many activities outside of the regular school day to enhance their schemas. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.

By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

This year, I am running an after school program for students in first through fifth grades. In this program, students are learning basic stitches in order to create different knitting projects.

Because my students come from very low income families, they spend much of their free time in front of screens.

To mitigate the amount of time spent doing nothing, I decided to start a knitting club. In this club, students will learn the value of hard work, dedication, and effort in completing a project. They will get a physical reminder of hard work and learn the virtue of patience. This club is a great way to calm students down after a busy day of learning and let them process their day while creating a project of their choosing.
