My Students

"You are capable of amazing things" That is what I always tell my kids. My students make my job great! They make it fun! I love working with younger students because they are always full of life and energy and that is exactly how my students are! They come in with a smile on their face every day ready to learn and have fun. Their energy gets them through the day and brings me along also.

My Students love to love one another.

They are so compassionate and loving to all of their friends. My students love to sing, read, play games, paint, be silly, tell jokes, and laugh... a lot! I am so blessed to have students that what to be at school and learn!

My Project

4 year olds have A LOT of energy! I am wanting to bring in flexible seating to my classroom to help improve their learning. There are several benefits we will receive from flexible seating in the classroom. One, by letting the students choose their seat when they come in the classroom in the morning will give them responsibility and ownership of their seat that day. Second, they will also have to follow the rules and make good choices in order to stay in their seat that day. By changing their seating arrangements, I hope to also encourage more learning.

Flexible seating makes learning fun!

I have chosen the following things to be used as seats in my classroom: exercise disks, wobble stools and stability balls. I hope that these will increase the "wanting to learn" mind set for my students. I believe when you are having fun you will learn more and want to learn. This is my hope for my project.
