My Students

My school is a Title I school that sits in the heart of Washington, DC. I have a group of 67 students who are fun loving, eager-to-learn new things, excited about school and love to read. My classroom would be considered a melting pot of cultural heritage and social needs. Many of my students have been in the U.S. less than 4 years. They inspire me every day.

To meet their needs, we incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!

My Project

The wobble chairs would be a wonderful tool for my classroom. The chairs would allow my students to engage their bodies in movement while doing their science, math and reading projects and school work. I also think they would be a great incentive for kids to work hard! We will rotate turns on the chairs and everyone will get a chance to participate!

These wobble chairs will also help with my students who are kinesthetic learners.

I want to start teaching my students that taking care of their bodies is as important as taking care of their minds.

These will be a wonderful way to encourage them to keep moving!
