My Students

My 24 students are eager to learn every day. I am so lucky to have all of them in our classroom. Every day I see their smiles and excitement about new learning. They are passionate about creating different projects in which they show their creativity, knowledge, and skills in different subject areas such as reading, writing, math, and/or content. Also, since Kindergarten, they have built great relationships among themselves which help them collaborate and learn from each other very well.

My students are bilingual learners.

They belong to the first Polish Dual Language Program in the USA. They learn to speak, read, write in both languages: English and Polish. They feel proud to learn the language and the culture of their parents and grandparents.

I am so proud of every student in my class. They are the best!!!

My Project

I want my classroom to be a place where my students feel safe, successful and important. One of many ways for creating safe environment and building positive relationships with students is to give them ownership of picking a seat that will help them learn best. As a result, in my classroom my students can sit on scoop chairs, bean bag chair, mattress, and carpet squares. However, they need more options for seating.

My students wish for wobble chairs to be used as additional flexible seating options.

Since I showed them different types of chairs other students have, they can't stop talking about. I wish that one day I can surprise them by bringing these wobble chairs to our classroom. I strongly believe that these seats will allow my students to stay on task and focused because they are allowed to wiggle while they are working. These chairs would be a great addition to our classroom.
