My Students

Our students come from a multitude of backgrounds, but many of them come from low-income homes. All of our students are on free breakfast and lunch. Many of them also attend our after school programs where they are provided with dinner as well if they choose. Despite their circumstances, our students come to school eager to learn and become better citizens in the community. In the classrooms at our school, we cater to all types of learners in many different ways. It is my goal to make the classroom environment motivating for all students in my classroom.

My Project

The stools I got for my classroom have been so popular, I am back for more! My students will use the stools at their tables during whole group, but they will also be able to move them around the room as they do station work, or classwork.

The plastic stools really help the kids with posture, paying attention, and they just simply have more freedom.

I chose a different type of stool for this project because I want them to be stackable and easy to store when they are not in use.

The stools can easily be used in stations. Two kids on a stool with a stool in-between them serving as a table. These stools will be easier to move around! The kids will love them!
