My Students

I teach two classes of 20, 1st graders. As, I teach Math, Science and Social Studies to both classes, my students are very hands on, and we spend a lot of time working in small groups and at stations. My students come from very diverse backgrounds, as I teach at a Title I school. My school being a Title I school means that more than 60% of our students are eligible for free-and-reduced lunch. Many of our students are children of active duty military members, as we are located close to two different Air Force Bases, here in Florida. This means that many students are having to deal with parents who are deployed, or are new to the area. I also teach students who have a variety of learning styles, this includes students who are considered ESE and ELL. Some of my ELL students are immigrants from other countries, and are assimilating into a new culture and are learning English for the first time, as some of their parents do not even speak English. All of my students, regardless of their backgrounds, are very enthusiastic and really love learning.

My Project

Flexibility and differentiation play a vital role in today’s classrooms. One way to meet some of my student’s needs is to incorporate flexible seating into my classroom. Flexible seating, such as portable lap desks, as well as “wobble” engagement stools, will help my students be more successful while working comfortably in the classroom.

Many students do not perform at their best, while simply sitting in a traditional table and chair.

Research has been done that confirms that physical activity such as moving and stretching can enhance the learning process. I feel that adding these items to my classroom will help me to provide my students with a better learning environment that will meet their needs, and help them to be more successful.
