My Students

My students are a vibrant bunch. Every morning they come to school enthusiastic about learning. They get excited to see each other, work together, and be successful.

The best part about my class is that they are all the best of friends.

They would do anything for one another. Whether it is helping with spelling a word, a math problem, or a friend problem, each and every one will always have each other's back. If someone gets teased, they problem solve together to make sure it doesn't happen again. Their willingness to accept each other and to always be friendly is inspiring.

My Project

We have some flexible seating options in our classroom. The students love the different options, but there's not enough for everyone to have something special to sit on. Students have expressed that they feel more focused when they are sitting on the stability balls. They have also shown more responsibility because they know they have a special privilege with flexible seating!

More seating options would make our classroom environment even better!

The wobble boards in this project will benefit my students who enjoy standing and working. More stability balls will benefit my classroom as they are definitely the classroom favorite!

The wobble stools would also make a great addition to our classroom! Students enjoy wiggling a little bit while they work! Making my students happy and comfortable is essential because happy students are productive students!
