My Students

My students are active, innovative, and curious 7th and 8th graders. They enjoy hands-on activities, collaboration, and reading time. I have a diverse classroom of learners with reading levels ranging from early elementary to college and beyond. As middle school students, they enjoy the freedoms of having more personal choices in their learning journey. They are starting to think about their future career paths and are eager to explore the world around them. Many are just beginning to imagine the endless possibilities available to them when they are willing to try new things.

My Project

Giving students choices when reading empowers them to take real ownership of their learning. My students need flexible seating options like the swivel chair, wobble cushions, and cushioned chair to get more comfortable when reading and to get away from the traditional desk/chair for awhile.

With these new additions to our classroom, students won't be able to wait to flex their reading muscles during reading time!

We need challenging reading materials that focus on informational text and inspires students to become life-long learners. I have limited nonfiction options in my classroom library, so the book sets will be a welcome addition. Many of my students have trouble staying on task when they must remain seated and quiet for long periods of time to read. Fidget bands and noise cancelling headphones will benefit those that struggle to sit still or those that can't concentrate on the task at hand.
