My Students

My students are inquisitive and perform the absolute best when they are working in small groups. They absolutely love hands-on activities that allow them to opportunity to work with their peers. They come to school each day ready to learn regardless of what obstacles they may face outside of my classroom. The majority of my students arrive at school each day looking forward to being in an environment that encourages a positive mindset. Each school year I get a group of students that inspire me to do more to help them reach their potential!

My Project

Currently, my students normally work in groups at their desks or tables. Although they love working in groups, it is often challenging to hear their peers when the groups are sitting right next to each other. These Wobble Chair and Comfy Floor Seat options will allow the students and myself the flexibility to move around the classroom to complete their work. Some students work better when they can separate and concentrate from others. I can scatter groups around the entire room not just at their desks which would produced more meaningful conversations and effective output of work. Students learn best from their teachers and their peers. Please help us!!
