My Students

My students have brilliant minds. They come to school each day, ready to learn. They do a lot of cooperative learning projects in class that require partnerships inside and outside of the classroom. Students take on different roles in their groups to give each student the opportunity to take on different responsibilities. They are all at varying levels of language acquisition, literacy, and mathematics. They enjoy the arts and keeping fit. They are motivated learners who are ready to take on challenges and expand their knowledge.

My Project

It has been proven that by offering students a work area with all materials they need to complete a task, students will achieve their goal. My class is in need of flex space work areas (lap desks and seats) where they could work on classroom tasks or read for pleasure. This versatile furniture will allow me to arrange flexible spaces throughout the day while supporting a wide variety of independent and cooperative learning activities. The flex space furniture will give my students an opportunity to find their "comfort zone" while accomplishing classroom tasks. By offering this flex space learning environment for my students, I will be able to meet the learning needs of my students by offering versatile, alternative work spaces for them.
