My Students

I am new to 3rd grade this school year, and will be serving about 24 students in my one classroom. The school that I teach at has over 700 students from Pre-K to 5th Grade. These students come from all backgrounds. It is my goal to create a classroom environment where they can feel comfortable while growing as learners!

Our school is near the beach in North Carolina, where students come in from all walks of life.

Creating the best learning experience is a goal that the entire school shares for our students.

My Project

Having Wobble Chairs will provide my students with the opportunity to move while in guided reading or math groups. Having students sit still in hard plastic chairs, puts a demand on their growing bodies.

While in guided reading and math groups students spend about 15-20 minutes at a small group table and having these seats would be a great way to let them get their wiggles out while continuing to stay on task.

Brain research supports movement while learning, which in turn helps students focus more deeply on content that is being taught. My students would appreciate the ability to focus while they are learning.
