My Students

My two kindergarten classes are full of high-energy, eager to learn students. We spend our days learning to read and understanding the beginning levels of math. My classes are very unique this year in that they are made up of mostly boys. This is a fun classroom environment with so much energy.

My students love to learn, create, build and move.

The thing I love most about my students is their willingness to try hard things. They are always up for the challenges I place before them.

My Project

Kindergartners need to move! I want to be able to give my students the opportunity to have a classroom with flexible seating. Students can focus on their independent work when they are comfortable with where they are sitting. Having the chance to move while they work, helps them to be able to concentrate and learn the material.

The wobble chairs will increase my students' focus.

These chairs will help improve students' core muscles. As the core muscles increase by sitting on the wobble chair, they gain more strength to work on their handwriting. My students stay engaged longer on an assignment when they have a choice on where to complete their assignment.
