My Students

I teach 24 third graders at a Title I school in the Bay Area. My third graders this year possess a delightful mix of playful and responsible demeanor. They are also a group that is very diverse in abilities, interests, and background.

My third graders are creative, enthusiastic, and inquisitive learners.

My students love to engage in learning using manipulatives and are mostly visual learners. I have a positive and curious group that is a mix of tech-savvy thinkers, avid readers, and creative artists.

My Project

Students are always sitting in their hard, plastic seats when reading or working. I remember watching my students read silently at their desks or rug, looking uncomfortable and rigid. Or the times when I had multiple small groups happening, but not enough work space for each group to be separated from other groups. This year our school will be teaching a new language arts curriculum that emphasizes reading for enjoyment and small group work stations. Flexible seating will allow students to choose a location in the room where they can focus and feel comfortable while working.

With the new floor seats, my students will be able work collaboratively or enjoy a book comfortably on the classroom floor.

The seats I have selected will give an additional seating option for students who want to read on the floor. Small groups could also choose to work together on the floor anywhere in the classroom away from distractions. The seats are also a more comfortable alternative to the rigid seats they work in most of the day. Comfortable seating will promote a more enjoyable independent reading experience, hopefully even for the less enthusiastic readers!
