My Students

My students come from many different backgrounds. They come with their own experiences and ideas. They are hard working fifth graders who want to show off their skills to the world! They are excited to learn new things every day. They are wonderful role models for the younger grades. They represent our school in a positive manner when out in public. I have a proud bunch of fifth graders, who are excited about their future. These students make me proud each and every day!

My Project

Students are more engaged when they have choices. One of those choices is where to do their work. The stools will give students an opportunity to sit comfortably while doing their work. The clipboards and lap desks will give my students the chance to do their best work by providing a stable place to write their amazing thoughts and ideas.

My students will be able to do their best work with these materials because they will be in a comfortable environment.

They can concentrate and focus better on their tasks. Our goal is to always do our best work at all times.
