My Students

My first grade students are creative, thoughtful and have a hunger to learn. Each student in my class presents and shows great dedication and devotion to achieving highest grades while striving to expand their learning on a daily basis despite obstacles they may encounter. They come to school each day excited to learn new information. Our classroom is their second home, a place that is their own, where they feel safe and love to learn. Our classroom is their biggest resource in the school. They use the materials and tools in our room to learn and to become more independent and take ownership in their learning. They are working hard every day to continue working toward their goals.

My Project

A kidney table and stools are a wonderful resource because it will allow my students to work in groups and collaborate with each other.

A kidney-shaped table gives students enough room to work on their own assignments comfortably without being on top of each other.

My students love to work together as a group, where they can share ideas, and work together to become more successful learners. Using a kidney table for small group instruction will allow me to monitor my students more closely. Please provide a kidney table and stools for my students where learning will be engaging and hands-on.
