My Students

My students come from a small country town. They have literally grown up together, and it seems as though I teach brothers and sisters every day! By the time they have reached me in 4th grade, they have been together for five years. We quickly become like family and have a wonderful community.

Although this is wonderful, it becomes challenging because they know exactly how to get reactions from each other in positive and negative ways.

My students are polite, loving, talkative, and active. I hope to meet their needs each and every day.

My Project

I have recently implemented flexible seating thanks to DonorsChoose.org! I have seen significant changes in the way my students work and take responsibility during their learning time. I want to further these options in my classroom so that all students can have alternative places to work around the classroom that will help them stay engaged and on task!

Every student learns differently, and I have seen that every student has different comfort zones.

I was very afraid at first of giving my students so much freedom. However, I have seen them make choices that benefit them personally. My students find places to work in the room where they feel comfortable. Not all students choose to leave their desk. This has really shown me that my students are mature enough to make responsible decisions regarding their learning environment.
