My Students

My students are typical students in today's society. They are intelligent, ready to learn, but often need their lessons presented in a more engaged environment. They struggle to sit all day and listen to lessons, but when expected to they develop a resentment for learning or school.

I want my classroom to be as comfortable and welcoming as possible for my students.

Most of my students come ready to learn and excited to learn and I want to develop that desire and passion for learning while I have them!

My Project

I want to provide alternative ways for students to learn. This includes more comfortable seating choices, games, and books that will reinforce what they've learned in class. I think students should be encouraged to move and shouldn't be restricted to their desks all day, so by offering more options for seating such as ball chairs and stools, they will hopefully be more comfortable and willing to learn. Games and books will provide a way for students to connect to the concepts they learn.

As we study ancient civilizations, we create and performs plays for younger grades to enjoy.

The backdrop will help us create a more authentic theater performance. Students will be able to draw and paint their scenes and the younger students will see the plays come to life!
