My Students

"Excuse me, I'm trying to become a better reader," is something you might hear from one of my first grade students. First graders pride themselves in making good choices to become a better learner, and enjoy helping their peers do the same. BES is a diverse school, and fosters an appreciation for different cultures.

Thirty two percent of our student population are English Language Learners, and 42% of our students participate in a free or reduced-price lunch program.

Our students speak a plethora of languages, including English, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Filipino, and Hmong. Our students are also diverse in their academics, as well as their preferred method of learning. Brandon Elementary offers after school care and seasonal extra curricular activities such as art, hip-hop dance, yoga, music, soccer, track, and homework club. We also have a community garden that is shared and maintained In Grades K through 6.

My Project

These wobble chairs will make a difference in my students' learning as they will provide them with flexible seating choices. These chairs will improve their independent stamina and ability to focus as students can slightly rock from side to side while working. Studies show that movement breaks throughout the day and between lessons results in more engaged students. More engaged students can more easily focus on tasks, and retain what they are learning. Furthermore, students diagnosed with A.D.H.D. will be able to engage their body in small movement in a non-disruptive manner while working in small groups. Lastly, this small notion of regular movement will facilitate the inclusion of children with special needs in a general education setting.
