My Students

I am a fourth grade self contained classroom teacher. This means that we spend a majority of our day within our classroom. My students are kind, bright, and creative. They have goals that extend beyond the classroom, and inspire me every single day.

Our units of study are based around science and social studies, and are designed to allow for thinking "outside the box".

This allows for the students to make connections throughout the disciplines and continue these connections in their day to day lives.

My Project

My students need to be able to have the option to move! We are working to create an environment where students can find a comfortable space that suits their individual learning needs. A change in seating gets them excited to get to work!

Do you enjoy sitting in a chair for 6-8 hours a day?

Neither do 9 and 10 year olds!

A classroom should be a place where students come and feel comfortable in their environment. It should NEVER be a place where they have to come sit in a metal chair for an entire day. While my classroom does have some flexible seating options, I believe this addition of yoga ball chairs will reengage my students in active learning during two of the most critical times of our day. This is a tool that will allow them to move around, and still get down to work!
