My Students

My students are hard working and very energetic. They are creative and love to read! We are a year round school and I loop with my class which means I get to work with them for two years. Our school is Title I with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast, lunch, and snack.

"It's okay to be different" has been a positive motto for our class this year!

We are very lucky to be in a culturally rich classroom where we can learn about diversity. Over half of my students are receiving services for special education and ESL. We spend a lot of time building our community and appreciating each other's differences.

My Project

I have fully implemented flexible seating this year and my students are thriving. They are successfully making seating choices based on their learning styles and thus improving their stamina for focused learning. They know which seats in the room will help them focus and are able to work for sustained periods of time. In turn they are showing huge growth in their reading and writing.

The current tall stools in my room are some of the most popular seats however, they have received so much love they are falling apart beyond repair.

I don't feel safe letting students use the current stools in our room any longer. Replacing these stools with a sturdier option will give my students and future students flexible seating options for many years. The stools in this project are heavy duty compared to what we are trying to replace!
