My Students

My students are learning today for tomorrow! They come in eager to learn every day and come from diverse backgrounds. No matter what their situations are at home, my students work hard to be helpful and to also embrace the motto of never giving up. They are always trying their best and even encourage others to do their best work.

My students love to be creative and make things with their own hands.

It is those things that they cherish and are proud of. Those things which make them walk out the door with a big smile on their face.

My Project

The seats that I am requesting will allow my students to have flexible seating choices in different places throughout the classroom. My students have loved the seating arrange thus far but I know this will really liven up spaces in my classroom and continue to encourage great student behaviors. The snap together Dino’s will allow my students a great choice time option in which they can be creative and construct their own dinosaurs. This will also allow another play option instead of limiting them to what play options they currently have. These materials will bring great joy to all of my students.
