My students are eager third graders who really want an opportunity to learn at school each day. There is a large number of children who come from poverty in my classroom. They come from many different countries and speak many different languages.
Most of my students don't have books at home to read and enjoy.
The school is a STEM Academy, which means we focus on science, technology, engineering, and math. I try to engage my students in many hands-on, learning experiences.
During the day, my students often work in small groups at the back table or in a circle on the rug. They work in small groups during reading time. We will be getting ready to start working together in small groups conducting book clubs when we start studying historical fiction and biographies. My students can also use these stools to sit in small groups in order to work together to conduct science experiments during STEM time.
My students need stools to sit on when they are working in small groups during the day.
The stools will make it easier for my students to be productive during small group activities.
