My Students

Our school has students Pre-K to 5th grade. They come from hardworking, loving families. We have students from all socioeconomic classes and many ethnic backgrounds. I am a new Pre-Kindergarten teacher and finding that they love school. I have parents tell me their kids are unhappy when the weekend comes because they want to go to school. It warms my heart to know they enjoy coming to school that much. That is what Kindergarten should be about, learning to love school.

Our kids come to school eager to learn and know they are loved and cared for by our teachers and staff.

They are quick learners and I enjoy making lessons fun and creative for them. They work hard and play hard too! I want them to feel like they are playing and enjoying school, but know they are learning. My classroom is a place for them to get ready for kindergarten so they can still enjoy naps, dramatic play and have fun learning!

My Project

My students love to read and listen to books on cd. We need a cozy comfy place to do so. I found a fun, easily cleaned and comfy couch and chair set in the new flexible classroom seating that Lakeshore Learning has created for classrooms. My students will be so excited if we can get this super cute set for our classroom.

This project will make reading on a sofa second nature, which will hopefully inspire them to snuggle up with a good book at home on their sofa.

My students are very young, youngest in the school. I have wanted to try flexible seating but so far the wobble stools have been challenging for my students to access and the bouncy balls are a bit too bouncy for my students.

I hope this small stationary set will help me enter the world of flexible seating with my class and help my students be more engaged in their learning.
