My Students

My students are full of imagination and wonder. I love the fact that they are such curious beings who are willing to absorb as much information as you will give them. My students are mostly native Spanish speakers, however they have worked extremely hard through the years to become fluent in English. These students are hard workers and they love to read!

These students will read any book you put into their hands and I would like for this to be continued through their lifetime.

My Project

The flexible seating will give them the ability to move around the room to read. It will also give them the ability to choose where they want to sit.

Reading and seating go hand-in-hand.

I do believe that these materials will benefit them when it comes to decision making too! Being given the responsibility of choosing where to sit in the classroom does come with having to make good decisions.

I do believe it will also make a difference in their reading, being comfortable allows you to immerse yourself into a good book. They love to read, time to make them comfortable too!
