My Students

My students attend a unique elementary school in rural, Amish Country, Ohio. We are one of the few districts in the area that still house kindergarten-sixth graders in one building while having multiple elementary buildings. The majority of our students are English Language Learners who come to school with their primary language being Pennsylvania Dutch.

Communication and language are a very important part of our school day and the children's use of English is vital for all subject areas.

Our classroom is everyone's second family, working together to support each other as learners and friends. It is so exciting to see the kids come together to learn new and exciting things and be life long friends in the process. Elementary school is a wonderful place to be.

My Project

I love having a classroom environment that is warm and inviting. A place that feels like home. Flexible seating has become an integral part of my classroom. By adding these cool tractor seat stools my students will have new options.

Why not get to feel like you are driving a tractor while plowing through your learning.

This is exactly how my students will feel with the addition of these tractor seat stools. Adding these six stools to the classroom will allow for more choices on a daily basis.

In addition to stools this project will add some tools to the classroom. We will start off with relaxation tools. Another new feature in many classrooms is a calming corner. A place to escape when feeling stressed or anxious. Tool added to this corner will be bubble timers and stress balls.

The second form of tools in this project are more traditional in a strong 3 hole punch for book making and so much more. It will also add much needed colored card-stock that will be used for making flash cards, games, and projects.
