My Students

I teach at a Title I school in the first grade. Most of my students come from low socio-economic backgrounds. They all have different needs but are all extremely special and excited to learn. My students come into my classroom at multiple developmental levels.

My students have different personalities and all have multiple interests.

Motivation and engagement is a fundamental part of education, especially at this foundational age. My students will be able to sit around the room to read and learn instead of remaining at a desk all day.

My Project

I would like to have flexible seating in my classroom for my students and am requesting Flex-Space Balance Ball Seats and Comfy Floor Seats. I truly believe students need seating where they can move around and where they aren't sitting in a desk all day long.

First graders love things that are different and out of the ordinary.

I think providing seats for these students will keep them engaged and interested. They will be become and remain motivated to come to school and not have to sit in the usual desk and chair all day. They can also move their seats around without having to pick up heavy bulky chairs and move them.
