My Students

My students are a wonderful group of second graders that are thriving to learn more and more every day. All of my kids come from military homes due to my school being located on a military institution. What makes these children unique is not only the bond they share, but the love and care they show for others. They love to greet me at the door and hug me before heading home for the day! Often, my students will have one or both parents deployed and have difficult days. They encourage one another to take it a day at a time and they are not alone!

Something that I really want to focus on this year is building relationships and learning how to deal with socio-economical situations through reading various texts.

My Project

Including flexible seating into my classroom will help students focus, be more comfortable, and provide them student choice on a daily basis. Students will have the ability to choose their own seating with multitudes of different options. Each table in my classroom will have an assigned day of the week that they get to choose from the flexible seating options first. Subsequent tables will have other flexible seating options available to them to choose from. I plan to incorporate an anchor chart lesson to help students understand their options, responsibilities, and how maintain care of the items. I learned from my students last year that this can make a difference in their learning and education. Providing these options demonstrates responsibility and puts the choice into the students’ hands.
