My Students

Despite their environment, my kindergartners enter the room happy, excited and eager to learn. They thrive from our established routines, one being whole group discussions. Many of my students do not have consistency in their homes. It is imperative that I provide a safe and nurturing classroom.

My school is a Title 1 school in which all students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Students come to school tired, hungry and unprepared for the day yet, they are resilient. They are dependent on engaging in productive learning.

My Project

Whole group time is always a class favorite. It is an important time where productive learning takes place. Students gather on the floor in the front of the room. Our classroom has linoleum flooring which is cold and uncomfortable for learners.

My students deserve a safe and comfortable place to sit for learning.

The interlocking foam floor mats will provide a soft pleasant area for students to sit. They will each have their own adequate space. Students that need help focusing can use the flex- space wobble cushion. This will allow them to wiggle and wobble without disturbing the class. These cushions allow them to pick the sensory surface they prefer.
