My students are inspirational! None of them have had a "traditional" school experience in their short school career, and they are showing fantastic resilience! These students have faced school shut-downs, online kindergarten, masks, uncertainty, and extensive population growth, all with a smile on their faces. They are so kind to one another and willing to share and help. They have some gaps in learning that I know they will overcome with their hard work, positive attitudes, and spirit! They amaze me every day!
My students keep getting hit with the worry that comes from the unknown. So many of them are experiencing anxiety and worry that my heart breaks for them. Between quarantines, masks, and online learning, they need something at school that helps them feel safe and calm.
These materials will help us build a community of choice and comfort, a community where they can feel at home and in control of their choices.
Flexible seating that can be easily cleaned will significantly benefit our classroom and our students' emotional well-being. It will help us build our social-emotional learning.
