My Students

I have a roomful of energetic, kind, caring and hard working 2nd graders. They come to school ready to learn each day, they are full of inspiration, curiosity, and creativity. They love hands-on​ activities, especially in science and math.

Each child in my classroom loves to learn.

They all have unique and varied ways in which they learn best. Which is why I vary my teaching strategies during the day, whole group, small group, blended learning activities, and centers. They are a great group of children and I am very lucky to start off this year with these students who are so excited to learn.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently, my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clipboards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clipboard​. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
