My Students

My public elementary school classroom is made up of an amazing, creative, and reflective group of first graders. They are a diverse population of students also learning the Filipino language. I use a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating to meet different student needs. It's important to create an environment where everyone feels welcome.

My rising stars come to school looking forward to the variety of ways they can learn.

It's my responsibility to give the students all the opportunities to be successful. Making each student comfortable and engaged will certainly help guide them in achieving success.

My Project

I'm constantly trying to adapt and meet my students' needs. It's necessary to increase student engagement and encouraging collaboration. Providing my students with a variety of seating options that is most comfortable to them is important for their overall learning.

I would like to encourage collaboration and engagement by providing my students additional seating options.

A rectangular floor table with the use of comfy floor seats will provide an alternative to the standard old classroom desks. Students will use the floor table during independent reading, choice time, or specific subject activities. The low table will allow students to comfortably sit or kneel while learning.
