The student who needs a little extra help, a smaller group to allow for better focus, a safe risk-free environment that allows a student to say, "but I don't understand"- this is MY classroom. I am a K-4 Reading/Math Interventionist. This years, I will teach K - 4th grade reading/math students that are "at risk" due to many various struggles. English second language learners, low income, learning disabilities, students lacking a support system and some with health issues make up the students that enter my classroom. In 30 sessions of small groups of 5 students, I try to close the gaps and help restore confidence and self-esteem in these students. These are my "Math Monkeys - Where we "monkey around with numbers" - the theme of my classroom.
Due to Hurricane Harvey, the past 2 years have been more challenging than most.
Many of my students are still displaced and some still homeless. Along with this issue, our school flooded and is in the process of being tore down. The past two years we have been sharing portables buildings as we try to service all the needs of our children.
In past years, I have taught intervention to 1st -2nd grade students. This year, I will be teaching intervention to Kindergarten through 4th grade students. The third and fourth grader students just can't bear to sit in my little chairs! So, I am asking that you help my 3rd and 4th graders to have chairs that is conducive to their learning. It is important for children to be able to sit comfortably as they learn.
Organizing your life helps organize the mind, therefore shelving and containers that I have in the project will allow students to find the materials needed to be self directed and independent in their learning .
These materials will supply the needed organization to allow students to achieve success.
