My Students

I was just transferred to 4th grade.

My new school is 92% Title I (free and reduced hot lunch).

My class will have 27 9-10 year-old students. We have diverse population that includes African American, Moung, Hispanic, Muslim and Latino students.

I could really use your support being transferred to a new school and grade level after 55 days into a new year.

I am working to empower my students by providing them with a variety of seating options.

My Project

Our classroom has 27, 9-10 year-olds that need a variety of seating options! By adding these seats, students will be given choices that meet the needs of a variety of learning styles.

Flexible seating choices are allowing students to have freedom of movement that will increase academic success!

Students in 4th grade spend 45-60 minutes reading daily. They write daily across the curriculum. These seats will allow students

to increase their time on task and increase their stamina through movement!

Our classroom is becoming a rich stimulating learning environment thanks to the flexible seating choices our projects are providing!
