My students always come into school with the best attitude, looking forward to learn. At my school the students have 100% free and reduced breakfast and lunch. Even with the low income at my school we always make the best of our days and enjoy being creative in our learning. I have a very diverse classroom and every students appreciates one another and their ability to come to school everyday. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
In my classroom right now we do not have a big enough carpet for the students to come and sit down on. During the day we do a lot of moving around and most classroom instructions are given on the floor. Having a big and organized (with the alphabet on it) carpet will help my students stay focused and enjoy learning a lot more. My students always ask why the other classrooms have big colorful carpets to sit on but I cannot afford one on my own being a first year teacher. This carpet will improve behavior by students staying seated in their assigned spot.
