Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach in an urban academy community school that provides a structured safe haven for alternative learners. We deliver highly specialized curriculum designed to engage children where they are developmentally delayed. Our academy is a non-profit school that fosters belonging and acceptance for every child. Our school is filled with eager to learn students, innovative, hardworking staff members, and supportive administrative leaders.

Specifically, I teach second and third grade and it is important for me to always make sure my students are provided with every opportunity and every resource they need to be able to learn, work, and grow as students.

My classroom is the home of 18 eager learners. Since our school district reports 100% of our students as economically disadvantaged, students lean on me and our school to provide them with what they need to learn. By understanding the way children learn best, I know it is important to not only make sure they are provided with basic school supplies, math and reading resources, but also recognizing when they need assistance with their basic needs being met so they can learn and work to the best of their abilities and become successful, productive adults in the future!

My Project

Flexible seating provides the students with opportunities to successfully complete their work. Seating alternatives are available to all of the students in my classroom during independent groups. STEM activities provide students opportunities to think outside the box and enhance their learning.

Increasing engagement and success through a variety of opportunities.

These products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools will allow for movement that conventional seating does not. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The stadium seats will provide support for the students while they are sitting at the floor table. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom. The students will be using the LEGOS and Snowflake Building Blocks to complete STEM activities. STEM activities can supply a learning opportunity to student during small groups or once they complete their work. The LEGOS will also be used during math centers to focus on making fractional pieces and building structures made into fractional colors. These materials will make a difference in my classroom by providing my class with the ability to move while learning and enhance their creativity though STEM activities.
