My Students

My second graders are vibrant, inquisitive and loving children that enjoy learning on any given day. They are full of smiles and cheer and have personalities that will melt your heart! They deserve everything that I can give them and then some.

My students enter my classroom each and every day ready and excited for new learning experiences — both academically and socially!

The smiles that light up on their little faces throughout the day make it all worth it! The growth that second graders can achieve in one school year is unbelievable when taught in an environment that meets their needs on their specific academic level. My kiddies live in a suburban community where they come to school ready for anything that they may come their way! My classroom is full of diverse learners varying from children with special learning needs, ENL learners, and children achieving above grade level. I cannot wait to provide my students with the various opportunities to learn on their own individualized level!

My Project

I am requesting flexible seating options for my second graders to learn at their own individualized pace and style. Lakeshore's couch and bean bag chair will help my students to become more successful by engaging them in a totally different manner.

Flexible seating will motivate and help young children who have attention and focus difficulties in the classroom.

Not all children learn through the same modalities, and it is important to fit the needs of diverse learners in my classroom at all times. Flexible seating also promotes concentration and alertness because it provides the choice to sit on a soft seat or wobbly chair while learning through various subject areas. Differentiated options of seating allows my students to feel more relaxed and comfortable throughout learning, while enjoying themselves at the same time. What more could you ask for?! It's life changing!
