My classroom is filled with amazing, diverse second graders. I teach students from all over the world, many learning English as a second language. I teach at a neighborhood school in a high-poverty area and many families are unable to provide their children with the supplies they need to succeed.
My students are energetic and ready to learn and many have diverse needs.
I use a variety of teaching strategies to ensure I meet the needs of each of my students. I believe that when students have the tools they need for success they are motivated to learn!
We are requesting lap desks, tote bags and privacy partitions. The materials I am requesting are to help give added choice in learning environment. Being able to choose the type of seating and tools students need is important during whole group or small group instruction helps them stay focused on the task at hand.
In my classroom, I like to encourage flexibility to allow students to learn at their own pace and style.
I am requesting tote bags for books that will permit each student to have storage and access to their personal choice of books from the classroom library. The totes will allow my students to carry their book selections home and use for independent reading in the classroom. The student lap desks will help students find a comfy spot in the classroom outside of their desks to write, read, and work in groups. Finally, the privacy partitions will allow students that like to work at their desks the option to work independently with out distraction. These materials will help my students to learn to read and write in a way that is best for them.
