My Students

My third graders are energetic learners. They come to school ready to learn with inquisitive minds that are like sponges. My students are eager to learn.

I teach at a large urban elementary, Title I school, in which one hundred percent of the students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students come from two-parent homes in which both parents work trying to make ends meet. Some of my students come from single-parent homes. This year over half of my students speak a different language at home and thus are second language learners. I just want to provide the best educational experiences possible for all my students.

My Project

In most classrooms, there are students who are always moving in their chairs. These students are the ones who tend to have trouble in paying attention. I have researched and found that if wiggly students can be able to move while sitting, they can focus better.

Kore Wobble Chairs will help my students who move around while sitting to be able to focus better and improve learning.

Having these chairs will improve my students' attention and also help them build core muscles. I plan to add more of these chairs to my classroom so that more students can benefit from them.
