My Students

My students are eager to learn and love to get their hands dirty while learning. We love to explore as a class. Learning is fun. They are very competitive and love to achieve. Students need to be able to learn in an environment that will help them learn and in which they feel comfortable. I want them to feel successful in school and learn to love the journey of learning. It is so fun to see their faces when they figure out the assignment through exploration and connect all the information. We are integrating reading, science, and math. It is so great to see them talk about learning and how much fun it is to be in school.

My students are from low-income or homeless backgrounds and don't get many opportunities for exploring or trying new things, and this will allow them to do both.

These items will help them to enjoy learning and have a desire to engage in learning.

My Project

Students are busy bodies that are always moving and jumping around. In the normal classroom seating, they have a hard time working for any period of time. These stools will help them to be able to work and stay on task to get more learning completed. It is much easier to get up and ask for help or to be able to be effective and efficient while working. The vinyl sheets are to put on to their desks to be able to work out problems without having a bunch of papers all over. This will help them to be organized and effective.

The seat is hard during class, but stools will make it easier to work, stay on task and be comfortable.

Its hard being a student. This will make learning fun and help them to stay focused.
