My Students

My Kindergarten students are taking their first steps on their journey in education. They are creating their first memories that will leave an impression on how they feel about school and learning. They are young, curious, and full of energy. My students are typical five- and six-year-olds that love to move, ask questions, and express their MANY different opinions.

Each one of my students has their own little personality and they all play, work, and learn best in different ways.

My class is comprised of a diverse group of students, which includes English language learners, first-time students, and students with special needs. Our school is located in a low-income community and all of my students receive free/ reduced lunch. With the diverse needs in my classroom, I try my best to provide a safe, comfortable, and the least restrictive learning environment for each student.

My Project

Giving students the power of choice empowers them to take control of their own learning. Students develop their decision-making and critical thinking skills when given options to choose from.

With more flexible seating options within our classroom, my students will be able to decide a seating arrangement that helps them learn best.

In our current classroom, my Kindergartners have the traditional seating arrangement of a table and a chair that they use. However, one size does not fit all. Just like how each of my student's personality is unique, so are their needs to succeed.

I currently give my students the choice to stay at their table, work on the rug, or use a pillow when reading in our class library, but I would love to give them more options for movement and collaboration. With more seating choices in our classroom, my students will be able to choose how they learn and who they learn with.
