My Students

I am a third grade teacher. I love 3rd grade students because they are eager to learn and explore with me. I want to teach my students everything they need to know to be successful people in their communities.

I want my students to know that I am excited for them to start learning about new cultures and places in this amazing world.

Also, I want my students to know that the world is big and full of all different kinds of people and things. Students always find it hard to understand that the world is bigger than what they see in their community.

My Project

These materials will make a difference in my students learning because it will increase student engagement. Flexible seating is a great way to open the classroom up to different learning styles. I found out that research shows a correlation between the subtle movements that flexible seating allows and an increase in student focus and engagement,” says Joe Russell, principal at Washington Elementary School in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

Finally, I think that flexible seating allows students to be more responsible for their actions.

I say this because with privilege comes responsibility so students must find a spot that helps them stay productive and focused. If they don’t, they can be moved and (gasp!) assigned a work spot.
