My Students

My third-grade students are hard-working, determined, and inquisitive! This year, my students have the opportunity to engage in flexible seating. Since I have introduced flexible seating in the classroom, I have seen the benefits of engagement and quality work. They love having choice and are sure to pick the best spot for their brain each day. Putting the responsibility of staying focused on them has caused them to become more self-motivated and self-aware. Learning with them is my favorite part of my job!

My Project

Throughout the year, my students complete growth assessments on the computer. This test is adaptive and other students can become curious as to what their neighbors questions look like. Furthermore, third grade is the first year where students will complete standardized testing in the state of Florida. This being said, during testing, my students need privacy and a reminder to stay focused on their own assessment. As stated, students can quickly become unfocused and distracted by other objects or people in the room. These partitions will provide my students with a gentle reminder to stay focused, do their best, and not worry about their neighbor as they complete these assessments.
