My classroom is a learning paradise for my students. It is a place for them to feel safe, ask questions, and focus on their education. They do not always feel these comforts once they leave my classroom door.
Many of our students have experienced hardship in their home lives and seek comfort!
We have a high population of EL learners, special education students, and foster kids. Our entire school district receives 100% free breakfast and lunch. I am here to make a positive change in their lives and give them a safe haven to call their own!
Our school has cement floors in all of the classrooms. While it is nice for cleanup you can imagine it is not so cozy to sit. I want to use the rug and pillows to create a special area for students to enjoy. I will recognize students who put forth the most effort during the week, and let them sit in the "Teacher's VIP Lounge"
All students should be give the opportunity to feel special and be recognized for their hard work, regardless of their abilities.
The saucer chairs and lap desks will replace stationary chairs and desks to allow more comfortability while learning. The 3 drawer cart will help keep those students organized while in that area. Making sure students feels at home will increase their focus and willingness to learn. Also, recognizing my students effort will reinforce a growth mindset.
