My Students

My diverse group of 3rd graders are from a middle class neighborhood that surrounds our school in Chandler, Arizona.

My students are full of energy and each come from unique backgrounds and cultures.

My students thrive when I incorporate movement, collaborative groups, and the arts in my instruction. Our school is transitioning into an arts-integrated academy that encourages students to express how they learn best.

We create opportunities to teach the students lessons that are cross-curricular and especially involving music, movement, drama, and various mediums of art. Student engagement has sky-rocketed since I have integrated the arts in my instruction. It is truly the best way to reach ALL learners. With this being said, my students could use your support with the materials needed to successfully express and submerge themselves in this new world of learning.

My Project

My students need more flexible seating options to add to our classroom community. I am asking for reading pillows and ottoman cubes for additional seating options in my classroom. Students enjoy having several options when it comes to independent work time. I am currently trying to create a learning environment where students can work where they feel comfortable.

I have implemented some flexible seating in my room currently, but I am working towards having a full classroom set of versatile options for each unique student's needs.

My students love what we have in place now, and would be ecstatic to have these additional materials!

I am also asking for some other basic supplies my students run out of extremely quickly throughout the year - glue sticks, dry erase markers and personal whiteboard erasers.
