VIP Seating

My students need a table with VIP supplies! I would like to set up a desk in my room for students to earn a spot at, who go above and beyond expectations!

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Second Grade is such a fun year of learning and exploring!

I love the enthusiasm that my students bring with them each day to school!

Our school is nestled in the heart of Meridian, Idaho, which was once a small town, and has now boomed to be one of the largest in population!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

I would like to set up a VIP desk in my classroom for students to earn a chance to sit at. Students will earn the right to work there for the day by modeling ownership, perseverance, respect, attitude and responsibility with their work.

Students who show this type of work ethic deserve to be rewarded and praised for going above and beyond!

These students are amazing models to their peers and I would like to reward them for their positive work traits! These special markers, glitter, pencils and crayons would be available for them to use to "jazz" up their work even more and make it shine- just like they do! I am also asking for a container for them to store the VIP supplies inside of to help keep it organized for that area.

Work ethic is such an important trait for students to have, and I would like to set up this area so each student can work towards achieving it! I know that with examples and modeling everyone can get to the special desk! I am hoping that if they see that they can all do it- it will become second nature to them!
