My Students

I teach a very active group of 2nd graders who come from a high poverty, low income area. Almost half of my students come from a home where a language other than English is spoken. Many of my students come from single parent homes or are being raised by a grandparent. Although these things could be viewed as setback, my students practice perseverance each day.

Many different cultures and backgrounds are represented in my classroom that bring a different perspective.

My students come to school eager to learn and give 100% each day.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble cushions can be used on the floor or on their chairs and allows some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. The stools will be used as another option for flexible seating in my room.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!

The math supplies will be used over and over in my classroom this year and for many years to come. Our math curriculum has several games that need dice and transparent chips. We currently don't have the transparent chips so they would be greatly appreciated. The four way countdown game will help the students get the basic addition and subtraction facts down in a fun and engaging way.
