Organization is the KEY to SUCCESS

My students need organizational carts near each group to put their class supplies. My students also need flexible seating to accommodate their behaviors and seating preferences to help them better succeed and learn.

My Students

My students are coming from a community of both affluent back grounds and poverty stricken back grounds. Some students receive free or reduced lunch and that may be the only meal they have for the day. Regardless of their backgrounds, they all deserve the opportunity to learn and feel comfortable in their classroom environment. Each student has their own special qualities and abilities that contribute to our class as a whole. We are a community of learners, each contributing our piece of the puzzle.

My community is a melting pot of different socioeconomic levels, academic levels and skill levels.

It is a diverse community that is useful in creating a culturally aware classroom. Each student brings a different story, different background knowledge and different skills based on how they have been taught to live and survive. They come to me all as individuals, here to learn more. My job is to help them always hunger to learn more.

My Project

My students will be more successful in focusing and learning if they have that extra sensory stimulation. Having flexible seating and bouncing bands will give them that stimulation that they need to keep them from getting distracted.

I also like to help my students develop social skills by working in groups, however, groups can sometimes get messy when there is no room to organize needed materials fro each student.

Most of my students and their parents cannot afford the all of the supplies that they need for class. I like to help out and have majority of the supplies we need readily available for the students.

Having the flexible seating and organizing carts will help my students in becoming successful in not just my class but hopefully all of their classes. They will learn organizational skills can be helpful and they will learn new ways to deal with their distractions and ticks.
