My class is comprised of a wonderful group of forty-six 7, 8, and 9 year boys and girls. I am blessed with 24 energetic young men, and 22 take charge, take care of everyone, young women that love to challenge each other, question everything, and make me work harder than I ever have in ten years of teaching. We are housed in a K-3 school that serves almost 1500 students.
We know no limits to what we can accomplish when we work together in a positive atmosphere!
Although we live in a town where the majority of the population live below the poverty line, you would never know it with the attitudes and determination of the children in my class. These 46 students love to use hands-on manipulatives and technology to explore math concepts and skills, and they love even more to have the opportunity to peer teach a friend who may be struggling. My classroom is a 2nd/3rd grade looping class, and I teach math, science, social studies, and health. Centers are our main focus during the day, as they help reinforce skills that need mastery!
We all remember having to sit in a single desk every day all day at school. It was so hard for a student who had lots of energy! Uncomfortable seating also distracts from the learning process!! These bean bags will allow me to open up an optimal seating choice for a student who may need his/her own space for maximized learning! Students will be able to create their own unique space with these bean bag chairs and a lap desk. Don’t you wish this had been an option when you were in school?!
