My Students

Our classroom is ready for some special supplies!

We have 24 amazing students in our classroom with exceptional potential and excitement for learning!

When I tell my students it's time to go at the end of the day I literally get groans of sadness. As their teacher of course that's the best sound ever!

Last week on of my first grade students referenced negative numbers, and during our nocturnal animals lesson another mentioned echolocation. How impressive is that? I've been bragging about them all year long and every day they give me some new information to brag about!

They make me so proud!

My Project

I chose more flexible seating options for my students because they love the few that we currently have and they are begging for more! It's interesting how even a 6 year-old can make choices regarding the way they learn best. I have students that will start on a balance ball, but move to a chair or wobble stool depending on which subject we're currently working in! My students are very intuitive and they show such maturity at choosing their seating options in class.

My students are so gifted and it shows in the work they're completing.

I'd love to laminate more of it so I'm excited to get our laminator in for their projects.

My classroom can get a bit cluttered and I'm looking for ways to keep it more organized. The label maker will be perfect for our team shelves and our classroom library.

We also have iPads to use in the classroom for AR tests and more challenging curriculum opportunities - and I'm running out of outlets! A charging station will be the perfect solution.
