Help me give my students a few interesting activities to use upon arriving in the classroom and a couch for a comfy place to sit, read and learn in the classroom.
My school is a Title I school with a diverse population of students. The large majority of my students come from low income families. Despite the many challenges my students face on a daily basis, they have a strong desire to learn, grow, and be the best they can be.
It is my greatest passion and calling to help students be kind and loving and to develop a love of learning and reading.
I also have a strong desire to create a welcoming environment which promotes cooperation, collaboration, critical thinking skills and an excited feeling of coming to school everyday.
Once you get kids excited about learning, you give them a lifelong gift. I teach skills that will last a lifetime like hard work and critical thinking.
My school encourages a growth mindset and strives to have a strong community where everyone feels welcomed. I want to support my students in their learning by providing a more comfortable and inviting classroom.
When my students arrive at school, they begin the day with morning "tub activities." They may choose among building with lego blocks, puzzles and blocks. During morning tub time, students participate in conversations with one another and work collaboratively. Students look forward to the day. I would like to enhance their choices by adding gears and riddles. Gears will incorporate engineering principles and riddles will engage students in critical thinking and problem solving.
A couch will provide a comfy spot for a few students to sit during group lessons, reading time, and other times throughout the day.
I am trying to create a more comfortable learning environment to maximize student learning.
