My Students

My second grade critters are splendiferous! They go above and beyond and just like my classroom motto, they are not afraid to make mistakes because that is how you learn! I have high expectations for my students and they always rise to the challenge. My goal is for them to leave second grade both independent with real life problem solving skills, and with confidence in their abilities, both academic and social.

Setting the stage to engage, high expectations, and lots of love are the three cords tying everything in my classroom together.

My Project

I want my classroom to be a place where students can feel welcomed, loved, and are not afraid to step out of their comfort zone and try new things

In order to make my classroom more comfortable for my students I am asking for help in purchasing flexible seating bouncy balls, a new carpet that will fit everyone, and places to display the books we are reading.

I want my students to have the best options when working around this room and this project will help me create a more updated variety of seating options, so students are not stuck at desks all day long.
