My Students

My classroom is full of energetic first graders who are eager to learn and be loved. The families I serve come from low economic backgrounds and will benefit greatly from your donations. 100% of our students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. For the second year in a row our district is ranked the top overachieving district by the Pittsburgh Business Times. This ranking factors in the diversity and economics of our school population. My students work hard despite their hardships.

My Project

First graders need to learn in different areas of the classroom with structure to gain independence. Flexible seating allows students to practice skills they have learned during whole group instruction and move about the classroom in a structured way. Instead of sitting on the floor alternative seating areas allows them to change their learning environment in a safe and structured way. We are requesting sit-upons and wobble seats.

Students love to move about and sit in new areas.

This keeps them engaged and allowed them to practice independently or with peers. Flexible seating also give the teacher time to work with students in small groups or individually.
