My students come from low-income Oakland homes but they come to school willing to give their best at learning Science, Math and how to read and write properly in academic contexts at a fourth grade level both in English and Spanish.
My students are passionate about learning and in general about becoming better little persons.
However, due to the different learning rhythms and styles, we have many things going on at the same time, so our classroom boils with activity all day!
All of my students are avid readers but as this is my first year in the state and the previous teacher was so minimalist, there was hardly any furniture to put books in. We arranged some desks and, voilá! a shelf, but it takes up so much space that it doesn't allow students to comfortably transition from one space to another.
This nook, a fold and roll book center, will help us save space and plastic bins, and it will help create more versatile spaces, allowing for privacy for quiet reading when forming an "L", or for students to be able to easily decide what to read when it is completely open.
