My Students

Every student in my classroom loves to read and learn, although how they learn vary from student to student. I utilize a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met. They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners who are excited and ready to learn each year! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically.

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. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The books I chose coincide with our science unit on inherited traits and learned behaviors to further educate the students on these topics.
