My Students

My third grade students are incredibly sweet individuals who are all truly motivated to learn and explore the world around them. I currently have 24 students and the majority of these children are emergent bilinguals developing English as a second language.

I want to provide them with the best classroom resources available.

They work so hard every single day, and a comfortable environment is critical for learning. With a brand new modernized classroom next year, there are some resources we desperately need to update our room!

My Project

My Title I students are always full of energy and excited to learn in our classroom. Flexible seating is such an incredible resource to provide third graders. The ability to move around and collaborate with others helps provide an opportunity for active learning.

My students are constantly asking to update our classroom with fun, colorful flexible seating spaces to make our room more comfortable.

It would mean the world to them if you would help us create a fun, flexible, relaxing, and collaborative space for us. Flexible seating is perfect for working with mathematics manipulative, partner reading, collaborative poster making, and more!
