My Students

My class is made up of 25 highly energetic 6 and 7 year olds. They are all eager to learn and love to share their ideas and thoughts with each other.

Some of them have to deal with hardships outside of school, and so we strive to make our classroom a 'second family' for all, and create a positive, nurturing environment, where each one of them can be successful.

We like to celebrate all our achievements, both inside and outside of the classroom.

My Project

These Soft Seat floor cushions will provide my students with personal space and comfort when we take our learning to the floor. Movement in the classroom is very important both socially and academically, especially with early learners, and different learning environments aids in focus and participation.

Reducing the wiggles and increasing focus on instruction is my ultimate goal.

Knowing the task they are about to undertake as they move to the floor will help achieve this. We enjoy listening to stories, adding to our Math Wall, and learning our Phonics on the floor on a daily basis. These Soft Seat floor cushions will provide each student with their own 'personal space' during these activities and allow for more focus.
