My Students

In today's educational system, the differences between kindergarten and first grade are massive. They go from a potentially half-day program with free choice play into a highly academic full day of non-stop learning. It's taxing on teachers but even more so on six- and seven-year-old children.

First graders have a very difficult job, and it takes special students to be able to handle everything that first grade throws their way.

They overcome obstacles every day to do their very best. Many of them do not get enough sleep or enough to eat at home, and, yet, they still come to school every day, ready and willing to learn.

My Project

When I ask my friends and family what their memories of elementary school are, they almost always mention something about their desk or seating area. This is where the majority of our independent work takes place but to welcome the wide variety of learners in today's classrooms, the traditional table and chairs or desks in rows are no longer what we envision in our classroom.

A healthy, fun, and productive classroom environment begins when students see their room for the first time.

They begin to see themselves in the seats and start to visualize themselves as learners. To accommodate the numbers and diversity of our learners, we need tables that will not only catch the eye and spark the imagination of our students but provide an assortment of seating options that can be easily changed and altered to fit our classroom needs. These tables will not only contribute to our bright and cheery classroom but are functional in so many ways.
