My Students

I have a class of 26 eager learners. All the students enjoy discovery and interacting with their learning. My students come from a variety of backgrounds. A number of my students come from bilingual homes and are on reduced or free lunches.

"If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember/You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think" -- Winnie the Pooh (Pooh's Most Grand Adventure).

My student sneed to learn they are capable of doing anything. They are faced with challenges, however, they are smart, strong and brave.

My Project

The students today need flexible seating to help them focus and get their work completed. The Safco Stand-Up with Swing Footrest Bar will allow students to swing their foot while working. This is good for all students and their learning needs. The child will swing their foot and complete their assignment. The Active Kid Chairs will also allow six happy students to wobble and complete their tasks. The pupil will wiggle back and forth while doing their paperwork.

Hot dog’ first graders need to move to focus on all their new challenging curriculum and state standards.

The fire red ottomans will be comfortable and good looking for the students while they are being taught new topics in small learning groups. The ottomans will also serve to hold reading, math and science manipulative. Our friend Pluto will hang out on the door to remind us to always be "Top Dogs". Thank you for caring about our learning and our learning styles.
