My Students

I get to work with 23 eager first graders everyday and I love it! My students are full of energy and excited to learn. I teach in a school where over 56% of the students receive free or reduced lunches and over 44% are learning English as a second language. With the high EL population at my school, this gives my students and I chances to learn from each other.

Even with challenges that my students face at home they come to school wanting to be present and to learn.

My students thrive from learning experiences that are hands on and give them the ability to have a choice in their own learning.

My Project

Last year I started using flexible seating in my classroom and saw such great improvement from my students. I would like to have more options for them to pick from, like the wobble stools and cushions. My first graders love having any choice in how they get to learn and picking a seat that is comfortable and suits there learning style is important. This helps get the wiggles out in an appropriate way and keep them on task!

My students thrive from any hand on experiences they are able to participate in.

With the LCD writing tablets, Hot Dots, magnetic tiles, foam dice, and games I will be able to create these meaningful experiences for my students during math stations.
