My Students

In Newman's Crew, students are excited to learn all about the world around them. They are not afraid to make mistakes because our classroom is a bully-free zone. They know they must use strategies for learning and are excited to teach others what they know.

My diverse group of second graders enjoy making choices in our classroom.

They work hard to solve their problems and learn personal responsibility to increase their "brain sweat" and reach goals. In Newman's Crew, every day is an adventure!

My Project

Students will be able to work collaboratively with partners around the room or find a comfortable individualized spot for better focus and attention in Newman's Crew.

Buddy reading will be a breeze with flexible seating options in Newman's Crew!

Additionally, these seating choices will allow the adult volunteers in my classroom an opportunity to work quietly with a student in different parts of my classroom.

Students remain engaged in their learning when they can make choices! Allowing students to choose types of seating, where they are learning in the classroom, and how they are learning, has made a huge impact on student engagement in Newman's Crew.
