My Students

My second graders are energetic and eager to learn! They come to school with many challenges but always want to do their best. I am just amazed by them!

As students in the 21st Century, they love to work and learn on technology.

Many of my students are economically needy and do not have access to today's technology at home. I would like to provide them as many opportunities as possible so they are ready for the world they live in.

My Project

My classroom is full of energetic students who have such a diverse way of learning and processing. This diversity is evident every day as the students work. Realizing the differences in the way students learn affects the way their friends see them, I want to make sure every child feels included in their classroom.

My students need more diverse seating options in our classroom to maximize their learning potential and make it possible for all students to learn and be included.

I currently have a traditional seating arrangement with desks and chairs. I seek flexible seating options to help my students' ability to focus and complete tasks. Physical activity is linked to higher academic performance and improved behavior. When the students are able to focus better, they will feel included by their peers as they are now able to complete their work and be a part of discussions and completed work.

I would like some wobble chairs and balance balls to allow students to move and wiggle to help them release some energy while listening to instruction. Also, fidget bands will allow students to move their feet while sitting in a traditional chair. Finally, the clipboards will help them if they choose to sit on the floor instead of in a chair.

The items that I've selected will provide my students with a chance to move at a time when they would normally be sitting still and TRYING to focus. By providing more flexible seating options with these wobble chairs and ball chairs, they will be able to find which seating option best meets their needs and thus allow them to feel as they are an productive member of our class.
