My Students

My student are amazing! I have a wide variety of fourth and fifth graders in my classroom. Our classroom is a home for math and social studies. My students come from many different backgrounds and demographics with a wide variety of interests.

Some of my students participate in activities outside of school like soccer, softball, football, scouts, and orchestra.

With that, students are very active and in need of energy outlets through out the learning day.

My goal is to create a environment where students take ownership of their learning. Creating life long learners, who understand their own personal learning styles.

My Project

My project is focused on providing my students with the ability to fluently move as needed with in their instructional day. Allowing students the ability to understand their own bodies needs and how they learn best will create a stronger, more creative, and successful student.

These Zenergy ball chairs will allow students who are extra active the option to move during small and whole group instruction.

By creating this extra outlet of energy students will be able to maintain focus during guided reading, math, and project time. Please, help me give my students the opportunity to have a flexible environment.
