My Students

My students are always excited for new learning experiences. They are so kind and caring. We have built an inviting classroom experience. They love to move, play sports, and laugh!

My students work so hard and are proud of what they accomplish in the classroom.

They do a great job of cooperating and working as a team. They are constantly helping each other to succeed in math, reading, language arts, science, and social studies. I am so proud of who they are and who they are working to become.

My Project

Everyday my students' desks are loaded with books, papers, pencils, Chromebooks, and more. We are very fortunate to have a Chromebook for each student in our classroom. We utilize the Chromebooks everyday. Therefore, they stay on the students' desks all day.

The seat sacks will give my students' back their desks and learning space.

The seat sacks will give the Chromebooks a safe place to be stored. We can refocus on learning instead of worrying about the safety of the Chromebooks.

The seat sack will also help promote organization. It gives the students space to store and easily obtain materials they will need throughout the school day.
