My Students

I have 22 energetic first-graders who are enthusiastic about learning. They live in an urban community and come from a variety of backgrounds. I have students with a wide range of learning styles and needs. They all love to move throughout the day, play games, and use technology. I try to provide activities that incorporate movement as much as possible in order to keep them engaged.

All of my students come to school every day excited and ready to learn, and I passionately want to continue to strive to provide the best learning environment for all of them.

My Project

First grade is packed with important and exciting transitions as children begin to develop more academic skills. Building reading skills is an essential part of a first-grader's learning process and academic success down the road.

We spend a lot of time reading in our classroom and I encourage my students to find a comfortable spot to enjoy their books.

I know my new first-graders will love reading in these super comfortable rocking chairs! My students can also use these chairs to complete work independently. I love being able to give my first-graders choices. Flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay calm, focused, and productive. These chairs will be a wonderful addition to our classroom and it would be a great way to ROCK the start to a brand new school year.
