My Students

We are a part of an urban district and many of my students come from financially disadvantaged homes. My 4th and 5th grade students face many challenges both in and out of the classroom. As a class, we work to build a community of learners which encourages hard work and perseverance. With the many challenges my students face, it is also important for each child to feel they are in a safe and positive learning environment. I strive to find creative ways to create this atmosphere for all the children I teach.

My Project

This project will allows me to offer flexible seating options for my students. With 30 or more students in my classroom daily, we need ways to save space! Wobble chairs will not only provide more space but also give students a way to stay active during seat work. The wobble stools can also be moved easily around the room for small group and partner work time. Students who feel comfortable in the classroom are more likely to work to their best potential. Our classroom is in constant motion during instruction and we work hard to transition quickly from individual work to small group work to whole class work. Wobble stools will make these transistons smooth for all students.
