My Students

The 25 students entering my class in the fall all live in a rural farming community. All of them come eager to learn each day and leave each day excited to tell their families about all the amazing things they learned throughout the day. The students in my class also differ greatly in reading ability; ranging from a first grade reading level to an eighth grade level. No matter their needs and differences, they all have a growth mindset; believing that mistakes are great, and they can always learn something new.

My Project

The addition of the requested sofas will take our classroom to the next level of flexible seating. My students currently love to stretch out while working and learning; however, that is on the hard floor or tables. With these sofas students could stretch out and work comfortably; all while maintaining focus. Moreover, arranging these sofas across from each other will promote communication and collaboration among the students. With a comfortable place to sit, students will be able to relax their bodies, all while challenging their brain muscles to work. Having these sofas would create the ultimate learning zone for the students.
