My Students

This year, I teach a class of 24 ICT (Integrated Co-Teaching) First graders. Forty percent of my class is special education and sixty percent is general education. My school is in a changing neighborhood in New York City. My students have many different learning and management needs in order to ensure a successful educational endeavor.

My students are intelligent and eager to learn.

I am trying to pass on my love for reading to this class, but, as a result of low reading levels and few interesting books, this has been very challenging. I am trying to create a collaborative classroom that adheres to all of the varied interests of my students.

My Project

My students this year are all very different learners. As a result, they have different needs when it comes to learning in the meeting area and around our classroom. I want to be able to give them the chance to choose to sit in a place that is most comfortable for them.

Flexible seating options will help my students choose what type of seating helps them to learn and concentrate the most.

I currently have wobble stools in my classroom and some of my students enjoy using these while they are working. Not all of my students, though, feel comfortable on these stools. Some of them would prefer comfortable and cozy spaces to work on the floor. Specifically, I am requesting the Flex-space comfy chair, 4 flex-space comfy floor seats and the soft and safe tree seat. Each of these is a beautiful seating option for students. By donating to our project, you will help to provide these choices to my beautiful little learners.
