My Students

My students live in a suburban farming community in California. Our school serves a diverse community of kindergarten through fifth grade students. I have a class full of energetic and capable second graders. They are full of wonder and take great joy in learning. This is the year that they transition from learning to read and really begin reading to learn. I look forward to working with them this year and helping them realize their amazing potential. I am excited to see what the future holds for them.

My Project

Teaching is truly one of the great joys of my life. I am very excited for the opportunity to provide an engaging learning environment for all of my students each year. I have been working toward providing flexible seating options for my students for a couple of years now. We have gradually added more and more options that they love. This project is the final piece of the puzzle that will make switching to flexible seating a reality in our classroom. The lap desks will allow students to use floor space to work comfortably. The book and binder bins from Really Good Stuff will give each student a place for their books, journals, and workbooks as they move around the room. The standing workstation magnetic pockets, and bouncy bands will be another great option for students and teacher alike.

Flexible seating will provide a comfortable learning environment for us as we continue on our literacy, math, and character education journey.

The character building books will help us learn empathy and provide examples of kindness. I am incredibly excited about providing a Storyworks Jr. subscription to each student. I know they will look forward to reading each new magazine. We will continue to build number sense with math games using the dice, dominoes and Keva blocks. Our writing and art instruction will be enhanced with the additional book also included in this project. All of these resources will work together to enhance student engagement and learning for my students.
