My Students

I teach a lively and energetic class of first graders! Becoming a first grader is such an exciting time of transition for my students and their families. These students are learning to embrace spending a full day at school and are being given new and exciting responsibilities. They are being introduced to a whole new world of learning! They come to school ready to learn, to spend time with their schoolmates, try new things, and have fun.

Each child in my class is completely and perfectly unique.

In our classroom, we strive to embrace one another, to build each other up, and to act out of kindness and love. This is a special group of students with a "never give up" attitude and a genuine excitement to learn.

My Project

I am thrilled to introduce flexible seating into my classroom! Having flexible seating options will allow my students a chance to choose which seating option they want to settle into during our class work time. Because students work best in different environments, the assortment of wobble stools, floor seats, and wobble cushions let them choose a space that will help them focus, release wiggles, calm their bodies, and enhance their learning. I am a second year teacher and have collected various, but limited, flexible seating options. I've implemented standing desks, stools, wobble stools, scoop chairs, and lap desks. I notice an improvement in focus, engagement, and enjoyment in my students learning when they use our current flexible seating choices.

I would love to widen the options of flexible seating in our class, in order to give my students more of a choice in their education and to promote their learning and engagement.

In addition to flexible seating, I am hope to expand our classroom library. Many of my students love to read chapter books, so I am hoping to acquire more books that reach their interest levels. I would also like to have a display book shelf in order to display monthly books, making it easier for students to find what they are looking for in our library.
