My Students

I am going to be in my very first classroom starting this August. Although I have not met my students yet, I know that they are going to be amazing. This is a first grade class with ESE inclusion! I will have many different personalities and needs in my classroom, and it is my job to make sure that these little ones have a place that they WANT to learn and grow in. I have so many ideas and thoughts about exactly who my little ones are going to be, but I know for a fact that they are going to be loved and wanted!

My Project

All of us know what it is like to have to sit in room for long periods of time without being able to get up and move around... It feels impossible and never ending! Now multiply that never ending feeling times 100, and that's how it feels for a child in the classroom! I want to implement flexible seating in my classroom so that my student have the option to move around the room during the day and pick a place that allows them to focus and be successful. Wobble seats and stability balls help those restless little ones who need to move in order to focus, while soft seats allow students to get comfy on the floor. My first grade class will also include students with special needs, and flexible seating does wonders for their learning!

If fully funded, this project will be used during center time so that every child has the opportunity to use the flexible seating options!

I am so excited to start my career, and this project will really help make the classroom feel like home for my students and I. I thank you in advance for all of your love and support in this project. Without your generosity, teacher's wouldn't always get to do what they do!
