My Students

Classrooms are like a community. Students need to work together many times to complete a project or learn a skill. The environment of a classroom is so important while teaching second graders in a rural school. My students come from many different homelifes and have many different learning styles.

My students are always investigating, working together, problem solving, and supporting each other's learning.

Even though their learning styles are different, they love working together and supporting each other throughout their learning.

My Project

Currently, my students use desks and I want to build a community feeling in the classroom by replacing the desks with tables. Having my students use the rectangular tables will make it possible for them to be able to do more collaborating. These tables will also allow for more organization, sharing of supplies, and more space throughout the classroom.

Students will be able to learn and collaborate together by sitting at the tables.

My students have great discussions and with these tables, they will be able to grow as learners and teachers. These tables will create a learning atmosphere in the classroom as the students have personal space, yet they can work together when needed.
