My Students

"Childhood is filled with natural wonder and curiosity. The learning environment must reflect a classroom that inspires a sense of wanting to investigate, to find out, and to explore." (Kathy Walker) Access to flexible seating will further student learning exponentially and facilitate differentiated instruction to meet the diverse needs in our classroom.

My third-grade classroom resides in a STEAM school in Arizona.

The students come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. My students thrive when they are able to work collaboratively, communicate, and engage in critical thinking. They love learning and growing in our tight-knit classroom. My students enter the classroom each day excited for the new adventures they will find and thrilled to explore new topics through collaborative experiences. They enjoy working with their peers on projects and solving problems together for better understanding. Access to a whiteboard table will allow them to show their thinking directly on the table while practicing and solving problems. This new learning environment will allow my students to easily share and explain their thinking process as they collaborate with peers and share strategies in various subject areas.

My Project

My students will be encouraged to write on their dry-erase whiteboard table and inspired to take risks to solve problems with the ability to rework and reformulate their solutions with the swipe of an eraser. During English Language Arts, they will have opportunities to write the main idea and/or supporting details and cite evidence directly on the table as we practice specific comprehension skills. They will also be able to show their thinking directly on the table while practicing and solving math problems. This new learning environment will allow my students to easily share and explain their thinking process as they collaborate with peers and share strategies in all subject areas.

The Whiteboard Table will be engaging and accessible to all students during small group instruction.
