These kiddos are all coming in still with a kindergarten mindset! Beginning as a first grader is a big deal for little 6 year olds! My 29 students are coming into the classroom from all different walks of life. We are a very diverse classroom and are embracing all cultures into our community!
As a class community we are setting the norm that everyone needs different things, some friends need more to help them focus!
I am doing everything in my power to give each child their own learning experience to reach their attainable goals. I couldn't have gotten a sweeter bunch of students to begin my teaching career. I get the biggest hugs, best compliments, and cheesiest smiles daily!
These different seating options will greatly impact the learning of my students. The students that need to move while learning are currently the most at-risk students in my classroom. I want to see these students make huge gains in their reading this year. These seating options will help them with this so much!
Allowing them to move while focusing in lessons will boost their participation and attitude towards learning!
The wobble chairs and wiggle cushions will assist students to move without disrupting students around them. The chair bands will help students who like to fidget and greatly increase their attention span during a lesson!
I want my first graders to love our classroom like their second home and feel confident in their learning.
