My Students

RCS is a small Public Charter School in Beaufort, SC. Our school serves a diverse population of students in grades K-8. My first grade classroom consists of 19 students who have a shared love for learning.

We believe in "learning by doing".

This experiential approach requires both independent cooperative learning. We teach through a conceptual lens and focus on "Big Ideas" and how smaller concepts fit into larger ones! This type of learning and curriculum is vigorous and difficult at times but our students are focused and hard working. They show perseverance each and every day and are constantly pushing themselves to reach their full potential!

My Project

Research shows that children need to MOVE! Please help me to accommodate these needs by providing flexible seating options for my First Grade classroom! During independent work time, children take ownership of their learning by choosing "smart spots" to work inside of the classroom. These choices help to develop independence and confidence in their academic, behavioral and social choices.

In addition to regular chairs, I'd love to provide additional options such as wobble stools and balance balls to help support a diverse group of learners.

Student's can "get their wiggles out" or move continuously while working if that's what they need to be successful in their task completion. These light weight and easy to move seating options allow for placement flexibility and fluid grouping options! Thank you for considering our classroom for your support!
