My Students

My 2nd grade classroom is a place of excitement and new discoveries. We learn many new skills in 2nd grade. Most of my students come from low-income families and receive free and reduced lunch. We are also a Title I School in a rural community.

Our 2nd grade is compromised of 18 awesome students who have a really deep desire for learning.

My students are so eager to learn all of the new things and to face challenges head on with a great work ethic.

My Project

Think about where you go to do some of your paperwork or maybe homework in your house....are you glued to the kitchen table? Or would you rather opt out and sit on the couch? This is exactly what choice students need to have at school. Students should get to decide where they would like to sit and be most comfortable in doing their school work. Students could choose to sit at the rectangle table with stools, or the low rectangle table with the wobble chairs. By having alternative seating in the classroom students are free to make a choice of which seating arrangement is best for their learning. By giving them a choice I am helping them begin to learn how to make appropriate choices to make them more successful in the classroom. This also helps reduce the amount of behavior problems that can happen in the classroom. Alternative seating allows students to spread out and doesn't confine them to their desk. Having alternative seating also helps with engagement. Students who are more engaged are more willing to have pride in their classroom and work.

By donating you will help the learning environment of our classroom by giving my students more choice.

Giving students more choices will help empower them to become better decision makers and take pride in their own learning. Students will become more successful in the classroom and have an opportunity to make the choice of where they think they work best themselves.
