My Students

My first grade students are eager to learn and they soak up information like sponges. However, my students are also very active. Asking my students to sit still all day and be quiet would be the most unfair and unrealistic thing I could do. They learn best and are most engaged when moving around and interacting with their environment. Anything I can do to incorporate movement into my lessons helps everyone learn better.

My students and I are a family so I want our classroom to feel like home.

They call me mom sometimes by accident, and I call them my kids. I take care of them and they trust me to not only teach them but to comfort and support them. I do whatever I can to accommodate their individual needs so they can each shine. I love my students, and I look forward to seeing their sweet smiles every morning. Everyday we start fresh and work together to learn and have fun.

My Project

I am requesting various seating options for my classroom such as fabric stadium seats, floor cushions, stability balls, stools, saucer chairs, futons, a high table, and rugs to give my students an option of where to sit while learning in my classroom.

Asking my students to sit still all day and be quiet would be the most unfair and unrealistic thing I could do.

A lot of students like to stand, lie down, sit on the floor etc. while working and don't always benefit from or prefer sitting at a conventional desk/chair.

I have purchased some lap desks and my students LOVE sitting on the carpet to work. I'm excited to hopefully add a lot more options this year to my classroom through the help of this project.
