My Students

When I say "Learning is..." my students respond with "FUN!" My students know that learning is fun, and when we move from one subject to the next, they cheer with excitement! Our day begins with our morning meeting, which is a time for our students to say hello to one another and engage in fun and interactive activities to "get our brains ready" for the day. Our day ends with an ending circle, which is a time for our students to share appreciations with one another.

Providing a positive, comfortable, and engaging learning environment for my students encourages on-task behaviors and students who come to school ready to learn.

My students live in an impoverished neighborhood and the vast majority of my students are on free/reduced lunch at school. School can be seen as a safe place for my students and they take pride in their classroom and have great care and concern for their classmates.

My Project

My students will use the flex-space work space seating as a flexible seating option in our active learning classroom. Each morning upon entering the classroom, my students are able to choose their learning space and seating option for the day.

This seating configuration provides my students the opportunity to work together, collaborate and problem solve.

My students will use this seating option when they are completing independent work activities, working with each other in cooperative groups or partnerships, and will also be used as a space for mindfulness breaks - a time when my students focus on being in the present.
