My Students

Our students are a curious and hardworking group of 23 fourth graders. They walk into the classroom each day with smiles on their faces eager to take on the day. Each student brings their own individuality to the classroom in a way that makes their learning unique and special.

Every day in this classroom is a new and different day.

The students in this class continue to prove that they can adapt and succeed in all types of learning environments. They work well independently and collaboratively and they are always striving to do their best!

My Project

Our students would benefit from more flexible seating options in order to reach their full academic potential. A larger carpet would give students a space to comfortably sit while they work independently throughout the school day. Many of the students like to sit or lay down on the carpet while reading, and another carpet would give more students that option. Also, students would benefit from a long rectangular table to work at during rotations. Lastly, the students need stools to use at two of the standing desks. The stools allow the students to make the choice to sit or stand while working.

Students love having the various options to work at throughout the school day.

Giving students these options would allow for them to reach their full academic potential and learn in a flexible environment.
