My Students

My first graders are six or seven years old. They are naturally curious, and they have a love for learning. These students are warm-hearted and will brighten your day when you are having the worst day. They greet you with smiles and eyes full of wonder.

We are excited to build a new community of learners.

First grade is a grade level in which the students make a great deal of growth within the school year. My students are diverse learners. I am looking forward to using various learning tools to reach the needs of each of my students.

My Project

Naturally, six to seven-year-olds are wiggly. They like to move around. When they sit for too long, they lose focus and get easily distracted. Many times, behavior problems can arise when they lose interest.

Encouraging movement empowers them to be in control of their learning.

Flexible seating will give them choice and allow them to release their energy yet focus on tasks at hand. With flex-space comfy floor seats, misbehavior is reduced, students are able to attend to their learning, and they are given tools to help them keep control. Not to mention, stress is also reduced with flexible seating. Children are not meant to sit in one place for a long period of time.
