My Students

I teach 21 wonderful students in a low-income area where almost 80% of students live in poverty. My school is considered to be a Title I school. More than half of students at my school have free or reduced lunch. About 50% of my class went to a 4K program. The students in my class work very hard everyday to overcome difficulties they face at home and in their community.

My students have to to bring their own motivation and willingness to learn and work to school every day.

They are creative, thoughtful and full of questions. They absolutely LOVE hands-on projects and experiences that allow them to collaborate, think outside the box, and learn about the real world. They come to school each day ready to try new things and take chances in order to grow as readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and more!

My Project

The students in my class have already created their own learning environments around my room. They utilize every area around my classroom, finding comfortable spaces to work in. I believe in letting my students choose where they want to work each day to promote independence. I have already implemented some flexible seating around my classroom including a standing table, clipboards for floor work and ball seats. The only problem is I do not have enough seats for every student in my classroom. In order to make my ALL of my students more comfortable and focused, I need Wobble chairs, soft seats and reading pillows.

To create a comfortable space for every student, you need many different seating options.

I would like to add Wobble chairs to my classroom to help my extra wiggly students focus. These chairs can be used during independent work time or carpet time. I will need the soft seat cushions for small group time and during reading workshop. I am going to create a reading nook with the reading pillows under my standing table. I want my students to feel comfortable and at home in my classroom and I feel the way to do that is by creating a space that is welcoming and promotes choice.

I have seen how choice and comfortable can positively affect my classroom environment and students. I know the new additions will help us even more!
