My Students

My 5th graders are everything I could have asked for and more, as a first year teacher. We have a smaller sized group of students, who all work diligently and collaboratively with one another. One of my biggest goals for this class, is for every student to feel safe and comfortable. After many team building exercises and focusing on mindfulness, we have achieved this. Over this school year, we have become an ohana. As their teacher, I desire to provide everything I can for them to improve their learning experiences.

My Project

The use of flexible seating is becoming more essential every year, especially in primary classrooms. As a first year teacher, I am limited in the resources available to my students. In an effort to provide flexible seating as best as I currently can, students are invited to complete assignments and projects on the carpet, bean bag chair, stand at their desks, and work on various tables throughout the classroom. However, I'm observing students trying to rock in their school chairs and walk around more and more. I have observed, that when students are able to physically move, their collaboration and efforts improve. As children have unlimited amounts of energy, I believe it is essential for them to be able to move around the classroom. Therefore, providing students with wobble chairs and balance balls plays an important role in their participation and grit.
