My Students

I will be transferring to a K-5 public school with 755 students. Eighty-five percent of the students are eligible for free or reduced lunch. I have yet to meet my new first grade students.

I know this project will not only impact the twenty-four first grade students in my classroom, but several other students that will transition into my classroom for differentiated support.

In my current school, I was fortunate enough to have a booster club that supported the school in so many ways. I was able to witness the powerful impact of collaborations in my current classroom environment. I know that getting this project funded would benefit the students immensely. According to state test scores, the school I will be transferring to currently has 24% of the students showing proficiency in math and 29% of the students showing proficiency in reading. I know this project would help support student achievement.

My Project

This furniture I am requesting will afford the children the space to work collaboratively. I am currently in a school that uses tables like this and the children collaborate several times throughout the day. I am moving to a school that currently has individual student desks and not cooperative tables.

I would love to see the children at the new school thrive from daily discussions and inquiries.

The circular tables will help support student discussions since the groups of four students will be facing each other. This shared space provides so many opportunities for children to talk, share their thinking, support one another academically and socially, give each other powerful feedback, and develop relationships.
