My Students

This will be my first year as a second grade teacher, and I haven't met my kiddos yet, but if they're anything like my 3rd graders last year, they're funny, kind, and creative. They will give the best hugs and have smiles that could melt any heart. They will probably love slime, so I will probably have to encourage a lot of hand-washing.

My students will love to move.

They'll need brain breaks and hands-on activities. They'll love recess and hate the sound of a whistle.

My students will love to talk. Mostly they'll talk about themselves, whether it connects to the previous comment or not. They will love to laugh at the funny story one kid tells about his weekend that may or may not be completely made up.

My students will love a lot of things, but my goal is to help them love to learn.

My Project

Last year, my students loved grabbing a clipboard and sitting on the floor, but this year I'm in an uncarpeted room, so I want to offer my students the same opportunity to sit on the floor to complete work, to dance to a GoNoodle, or to participate in the classroom conversations and morning meetings we will have.

It's hard to have an effective, community-building meeting with the kids when they are spread around the room behind desks.

Classroom conversations (whether positive or corrective) just shouldn't happen in the same location that students complete their classwork.

In fact, students shouldn't be restricted to staying in one place all day long! We adults often don't like sitting in one seat all day, so why should seven and eight-year-olds be expected to do it? I've always believed that flexible seating works, and having this carpet would just offer my kids one more flexible seating option.
