My Students

My students are AMAZING! This group of students that I have this year are so smart, kind, funny, eager to help others and are MOTIVATED!! They are working hard to rejoin their peers within the regular education classroom for the entire day.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

They will provide alternative seat options that will help in focus and attention. This will allow student's choice and make a comfortable learning environment. The two different seating options will be incorporated in with a few other options that I currently offer all students in my room.

I have many students who are active and sitting still for long periods of time is difficult.

These seating options will offer active students ways to wiggle but still work without distracting other students within the classroom. The ball chairs will also aide in posture and will help those who have low tone.
