My students need the option for flexible seating within our classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
First graders are fantastic! It is such an outstanding year of growth, academically, socially and emotionally. They smile, they laugh, they cry, and they love to learn! They are curious little ones. I believe in modeling good character. In our class we value each other, we celebrate success and encourage each other when frustrated or struggling. We show kindness and empathy toward one another. Our classroom motto is "always do the right thing, even when no one is looking."
First graders are busy little bees!
Our school is a Title 1 school in NJ. More than half of our students come from low-income households and receive free and reduced lunch, and breakfast. Despite the hardships that many of them face, they come to school every day with a smile on their face and a hug for their teacher. I would do anything to make things easier for them.
Some of my first-grade friends have a lot of energy. We are movers and shakers, we move around our classroom all day. We sit at our big rug, at our desks, and small group tables. I recognize that my students learn in different ways. I differentiate daily academic instruction for them, through the use of manipulatives and ability appropriate activities. Now, I would like to differentiate for them, by offering a variety of seating options. Comfy floor seats to sit on the rug at while reading a good book and wobbly stools for my friends at their desk, who have a little extra wiggle in them. By doing this I am giving them more opportunities for success.
