My Students

Our class has a steady hum of activity. I want my students to feel so caught up in learning that they are not even aware that learning is going on. To reach my diverse learners I draw upon strategies that promote active engagement so that all my students can participate to their fullest potential.

My Kindergarteners love learning, and why wouldn't they?

It's contagious! My young scholars are in a dual language program where all students are learning English and Spanish. My class is made up of English language learners and native English speakers. What I love about teaching dual language kindergarten is that the program fosters bilingualism, biliteracy, and high levels of academic achievement through instruction in two languages--50% of our day is English and 50% is Spanish.

Our students are also developing an awareness and appreciation of the diversity and uniqueness of individuals. As a school, we are 86% economically disadvantaged and most receive free or reduced price lunch.

My Project

Flexible seating will allow my students to have choice and comfort in where and how they learn, allowing for higher student engagement.

The wobble chairs and stools allow for active sitting and can be easily moved around the classroom.

My students can use the bathroom rugs around the classroom in a spot that works best for their learning. The numbered rug spots help students find their personal space whether we sit in a large or small group.

The wobble chairs, stools, and rugs will all enhance our kindergarten learning environment by offering options for flexible seating. This will empower my students by allowing them choice and comfort for higher student engagement.
