My Students

My 1st grade students are eager to learn as they take their first steps into elementary school. They are excited to explore modern ideas and have new experiences as they begin this chapter of their lives. With being a Leader In Me, striving for lighthouse status, we are guiding the students on how to be leaders in our school and in our community, by providing the 7 Habits to educate give the tools to succeed.

"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all" -Aristotle

Half of my school qualifies for free/reduced lunch, so I want to ensure that they are being provided the materials that they need and deserve to succeed in my classroom!

My Project

By adding some flexible seating in my classroom allows my students to make "smart choices" in their seating each day. These options are appropriate for my first grade students, and will create independence during the school day! Independence will create a stronger and more prepared student for the next school year! The flexible seating options I chose are black stackable stools, for easy storage at the end of the day, and Soft and Safe tree seats from Lakeshore Learning!

The students can use the 4th Habit, "Think Win-Win" to choose the best seat for them during the school day.

My students have matured so much throughout the school year, and are ready to take on the challenge of finding the best seat for them, to promote the best possible learning in our classroom!
