My Students

Our classroom is full of inquisitive learners who always want to know more. These first-grade minds are always hungry to learn- through books, hands-on activities, and each other. A classroom full of diverse learners (which classroom isn't?!) helps drive our instruction and has brought so much new knowledge to our students.

The best part of our class is the numerous relationships that have been built this year- among peers, teachers, and volunteers in our classroom.

These relationships foster the learning that drives our students and their learning.

My Project

My class is full of enthusiastic, wiggly students. We have standard classroom chairs with 4-legs, as well as two wiggly stools (that, of course, get a lot of love and are often fought over) for sitting at tables. Thanks to a prior Donors Choose project, we also have several fun chairs and spaces around the room for working on the floor or at low tables. When they're working at tables, this group of kids can most often be seen "tipping in chairs and falling" (as stated by one student in my class).

Because my students love to tip and wiggle in chairs that have 4 legs and are meant to be flat, many students have gotten hurt when their chairs topple over while sitting on them.

When surveyed- 16 students stated that it would be easier to learn if they were able to safely rock in a chair.

We are asking for 6 chairs that are designed for rocking in safely. Although this isn't enough for our whole class to be able to rock at a table, it is enough for about 1/3 of our class to sit in one of these chairs.
