My Students

I teach First grade. This year I have 16 wonderful students. The majority of my students come from a low socioeconomic background. Approximately, 44% of the students in my class are English Language Learners.

My kids are fun, energetic, and love learning!

They like to move around and be active in the classroom. As 6 and 7 year olds, they have short attention spans and need to move from one task to another quickly.

The kids work hard to do their best in school. All of my students are hard workers! They want to learn and they want to please the adults in their lives. I really have a sweet bunch of kiddos this year!

My Project

My students like to be moving. I am asking for wobble stools to use at our kidney table when the students come back to work in small group with me. If they are able to have controlled movements, they can fulfill the need of a 6 or 7 year old to move AND focus on learning!

In our learning stations, we utilize technology, and we need a flexible seating option for our Chromebooks.

I found the Surf Portable Desks online and thought that they would be perfect for my students! It will give them another place to take their Chromebook to work. First graders like to move often. These portable desks will allow them to sit on the floor with a desk instead of in a chair.
