My Students

A room full of active nine and ten year olds? Yes, please! I count myself lucky to spend my days with 4th graders who keep me on my toes. I in turn feel it is my responsibility to keep them up, moving, collaborating, and creating (and on their toes) during the school day.

Today's students are a group of learners who need direct connections between what we learn at school and their future in the real world.

Collaborative skills at work in an active school environment is what we are all about. The more we can get our hands dirty and make connections to future career possibilities the better!

My Project

Over the past three years I have worked to alter my classroom environment from the typical classroom of self contained desks and chairs to a collaborative space. I have collected flexible seating options like exercise balls, wobble stools, and floor cushions.

As the saying goes, "Two (or three) heads are better than one." My students and I have discovered that table space for two or three to gather together to collaborate is what we are missing in our classroom space.

We have found that our most successful collaborative size group is two to three students. This brings in just the right amount of differing view points while still keeping everyone an active part of the task at hand. We have some individual tables and we have some large tables, but we are missing the just right size for two or three to gather and dig into some problem solving work.
