My Students

"Life will examine us continually to see if we have understood and have practiced what we were taught that first year of school." ~ Robert Fulghum. Kindergartners bubble over with enthusiasm and excitement! While that makes for eager learners, it many times means that they have a difficult time sitting and listening for long periods of time. Kindergarten has gotten more rigorous, but children have fundamentally remained the same.

These little ones learn best when they are able to physically interact with their environment.

Anyone who has taught this age group knows that allowing kids to touch and feel things helps them understand at a deeper level. I teach the most amazing group of 4 and 5 year olds on the planet. I want to provide the best for them. Please help me accomplish this goal.

My Project

Flexible seating is becoming popular in classrooms across the country. Students benefit from alternative seating options through increased attentiveness and improved posture. Stability balls give students a safe and controlled outlet to get their wiggles out.

My students need your support to help us transition away from traditional classroom seating.

I am requesting 6 western themed stability ball seats for my transitional kindergarten classroom. These stability balls will be an additional seating option for my students. Providing students with alternative seating options gives them choices and ownership over their learning, as well as allows them an opportunity to move.

Additionally, I am requesting bandanas, stick ponies and western books to help create a thematic classroom experience for my students.
