My Project

My students are creative and thoughtful learners with a lot of energy. They are curious about the world and the people in it. My students are always moving and enjoy moving around the room while they work and learn together. We learn through hands-on, cooperative learning activities that keep them engaged and excited throughout each day.

My students love to read, write and explore together and are happy to come to school.

Moving to various areas of the room helps different types of learners to stay focused and engaged. Being able to offer my student lap desks and seating cushions will give them not only opportunities to move about but also to work in cooperative teams and groups in areas other than their assigned desks and table groups.

Offering this flexible seating gives students options for movement, comfort, and choice as they engage in their daily independent, partner, and group work.
