My Students

There’s never a dull moment with first graders. They are like little sponges, everything you say they absorb. Not only are they curious and eager to learn, they are discovering the world around them. During this time, they are learning so much such as the foundational skills of reading and writing, all the way to social skills.

I teach at an IB school, where I’m developing thinkers and future leaders of tomorrow.

We have doctors, teachers, Armed Forces Members, and future Olympians just to name a few, in our classrooms. My students look forward to hands-on-activities and brain breaks to get the wiggles out.

My Project

As I stay current on research, I know that young students have to move and wiggle. After all who doesn’t like to move and wiggle during the day??? I would love for my students to have the opportunity to learn as they have a choice of seating. I love the idea of flexibility seating inside the classroom. I started it this year with yoga balls and old pillows from thrift stores. I would like to provide them with more choices. I’m asking your help with new seating for my wiggly first graders.

I'm requesting flexible seating for my classroom such as an active learning stool for my students with ADHD.

Trideer Inflated Stability Wobble Cushion for students to be able to move as they read books. A Wobble Chair to keep younger students engaged as they listen to the lesson being taught. Bouncy Bands for the students who need a chair but also to move around.
