My Students

I teach at a Title I School in an urban area of Massachusetts. We are a diverse population, with many families whose first language is not English.

We love sharing our learning with others!

My students are very eager to learn and love sharing their stories with everyone they meet. We love using technology to share our thinking and learning with our families. We have loved learning to apps mash and are just scratching the surface of using technology creatively. Help us share our learning with our families and greater community.

My Project

We start every day on our classroom rug with Morning Meeting. The rug that we currently have is fraying and the binding is falling off.

A new classroom rug will help to foster a welcoming environment in my classroom.

The squares on this rug will also create defined spaces for students. I love how the rug is edged with the alphabet creating a clear perimeter - for sitting in a circle as well as rows.

We spend much of our day on the rug, it would be wonderful to have one that will stand up to the day to day use.

My students would truly appreciate a comfortable and durable rug to sit on.
