My Students

I teach 3rd grade and it is such an exciting time for students. During the year, the students go from being dependent 2nd graders that need a lot of guidance to more independent 3rd almost 4th graders. It is fun to watch the students during their year of transition as they become more confident learners and more in charge of their own learning.

For many of my students school is the one good and reliable thing they have in their life.

I teach in a low-income area where over 60% of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch. It is extremely important for me to create a safe and loving environment for my 3rd graders and to keep school a happy place for them to be.

My Project

The wobble stools and lap trays I am requesting will be extremely helpful for my students' learning and will help guide my classroom into personalize learning. Part of personalized learning is having the choice of where the learn is done.

These learning materials will give my students choices about where they want to sit to learn and work successfully.

Both the wobble stools and the lap trays will help students focus and stay on-task because it will allow them to make a choice that works for them.

My students love being able to move around the room to find a spot where they can be the successful. These learning tools will help make that more possible for my students.
