My Students

My students are looking to use their individuality to become the best humans they can be. Through out this school year, my students have realized that they each have special qualities and traits that make them unique.

Especially because they all learn differently.

These children love to move, think, build and socialize with one another to share their very special ideas and thoughts. This helps them better understand one another and themselves. Each child in my class values different experiences and loves to share what they have learned. These kiddos definitely value one another's differences and celebrate them in our classroom!

My Project

This school year I have adopted a flexible seating arrangement for my classroom. Recently, my students have been sitting on previously used bean bag chairs which are now unsalvageable. The children are back in their desks and they are not as focused or as motivated as they were previously.

Please help us "bag" the uncomfortable desks and refocus on new bean bag chairs.

My students will be more focused if they find comfort in their seating choice. With new bean bag chairs, my children will experience the full effects of flexible seating and stay focused for longer periods of time. In turn, this will result in better learning! These chairs will be used for all subject areas. Since the children are able to move around the room on a daily basis, several children will benefit from these seats each hour. My students and I would be so appreciative for new bean bag chairs in our classroom. Thank you for considering a donation to our class.
