My Students

This year I will have the pleasure of teaching 28-30 energetic and hard working 5th grade students! My students will experience long days attending school from 7:35 until 3:45. Even though they will experience brain breaks it gets tough for them to stay focused for that long without getting fidgety!

Their math and reading blocks will last all morning long until they go to lunch and as you can imagine, this is a long time to stay seated and focused!

Due to this I need a better way to help these students stay focused during this long period of time. I need to get my students prepared for state testing and middle school which is why it is important for my students to be able to focus!

I hope to provide my students with flexible seating options that will allow them to work in a comfortable environment that promotes engagement.

My Project

Thank you for taking the time to read about my project. With your help, my fifth graders will be able to choose from more seating options throughout their long school day. Stools and cushion help them get some of their fidgeting out while being comfortable and completing their work!

As their teacher it is part of my job to provide them with an environment that they are eager to come to each day and are ready to focus.

It is also my job to provide them with a place where they feel safe and comfortable. These products will allow me to reach my goal as a teacher, and give my students a classroom they want to come to and work in each day! The goal of this project is to purchase items for my students to use on a daily basis. With these flexible seating options my students will be able to work comfortably around the room in small groups which is commonly done throughout the day in the classroom.

Students come with all different needs, and I have noticed, over the years, how important it is to be able to provide my students with options. Now they will be able to have options when it comes to their seating!
