My Students

This is my first year teaching and most first years wouldn't know a whole lot about their students. In this case, I am so lucky! I student taught in 4th grade and now I will be their 5th grade teacher! They are a group of very sweet students who like to greet their teacher with hugs each morning and enjoy ending the day in the same way.

These kiddos are such unique individuals who truly and whole-heartedly want to learn all that they can.

Their individual personalities make teaching them so much fun!

My Project

In school, students are typically expected to sit and stay focused on the task at hand, whether the task is group related, or individual. Most of my students are so eager to learn, but have all kinds of energy that they need to get out.

Having stability balls and wiggle cushions will allow my students to get their wiggles out as they are focused on the tasks at hand.

Having multiple choices in seating gives students the opportunity to have a say in what will best help them be successful. The stability balls will allow students to bounce around as they work. Wobble cushions give students the ability to do just what they name of the product says, wobble! These items will help all of my students be successful in the classroom.
