My Students

A typical day in my classroom is busy! My classroom has 20 students that are very active and love to learn. My students love to work on activities where they can explore and use their problem-solving skills to learn!

My students come from a variety of backgrounds.

They are very active and have a love for learning. Our school has a high poverty rate, and many children work very hard to succeed in the educational setting. They love to be given a challenge and work towards finding the answer. Offering them something besides a traditional method of gaining knowledge would greatly enhance how today's child stays engaged in an activity. My students definitely enjoy having a variety of choices for their learning and love to show their enthusiasm for learning in creative ways.

My Project

I am asking for beanbags, a rug, and individual student book bins to use for our reading classroom. This variety of classroom seating and storage would enable my students to learn and move at the same time. They will also use the area for partner discussions and independent reading during our reading workshop.

This allows the students some movement with their reading material and be able to immerse themselves in their reading in a comfortable manner, similar to how they might be reading at home.

My students will enjoy the variety of learning areas in the classroom and will love having an area to store their books!
