My Students

Third grade is a year full of changes, bringing new ways to learn and relate to peers. Students become more independent and responsible and friendships become more important to them. Third-graders work cooperatively on math tasks and science explorations.

Although we are a low-income/high poverty school district, I want my students to have a comfortable classroom environment where they can enjoy hands-on activities and working with classmates.

Many of our students come from economically disadvantaged households and will have to change schools during their elementary years. Despite this, most students look forward to school and are enthusiastic about learning.

My Project

Classroom tables will better facilitate opportunities for my students to share materials and their reasoning about math and science concepts. Our school facility is safe and attractive, but the classroom furniture is old and outdated. I am changing grade levels and my room for the upcoming year has individual desks of various sizes and styles that do not fit together well to form learning groups. I have a few floor mats and stools, but we need tables.

Tables will maximize limited classroom space, allowing room for stations and hands-on activities in both math and science.

Additionally, tables will help support a collaborative class community and promote positive peer interactions when students are given a comfortable space to learn together.
