"Learn something new every day!"- There is a poster hanging up in our 6th grade science and math classroom with these words and my students truly take these words to heart. They bring a contagious positive attitude about learning to school with them every day and they get so excited about everything we do. My students inspire and teach me just as much as I teach them.
My students are trying to find their place and purpose in life; middle school is both an amazing and challenging time for kids!
They want to inspire and motivate others. My students are constantly setting goals in academic areas and in other aspects of their lives. They have incredible ideas to make the world a better place and I want to encourage and help grow their dreams!
My sixth grade classroom still has three rows of desks. These individual desks have the seats attached and are not a great option for a science class! I've been trying to replace the desks with tables so students can work in groups on projects and science experiments. This project if fulfilled will add two different tables to my classroom.
These tables will add to the seating options my students have for completing projects and experiments.
Students have flexible seating during their work time and they get to choose where in the classroom they work best. I'm also creating more of a Makerspace in my classroom this year! This includes a variety of supplies students can use to show their understanding of a certain standard. This Makerspace will allow STEM education to truly flourish in my classroom. These tables will allow students to have the space they need to create!
