My Students

Lively, energetic, and kind are three words I would use to describe our young learners. Every day, they do their best to achieve all that they can. Our students desperately want to be actively involved in what they do in the classroom.

Living in a large city can be difficult for many young children.

My young learners live close to the downtown area in our city. They go to a Title I School, where all students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. Their basic food needs, except for dinner, are taken care of, but now they need something to sustain their minds.

My Project

What makes you think? How do you think best? When do students learn best?

Learning is accomplished many times while students activity move throughout the day; knowing this, Flex-Space Comfy floor seats will help students function at higher levels.

My students and I request these seating options so that we have Seats for Thought. Engaging minds happen as we move. Sitting still is not meant to occur naturally. Being able to get up and down or sit where one is comfortable is very important.

We are also requesting a Managers Chair for our teacher and the Author of day to use. The laptop table is for presenting our projects as Author of the day.
