My Students

I have 26 first graders who enter the classroom daily with a positive attitude and who are ready to learn. They are a very diverse group of students who embrace each other's differences. Over 63% of our school population are on free/reduced lunch, so any extra support or resources we receive is much appreciated. The students I have this year are resilient, kind, and love to explore! They get restless if they have to do seat work; it is through hands-on learning where they truly thrive. Being able to hold things, examine, and create, are some of the ways we learn in our classroom. We emphasize collaboration, teamwork, and helping each other out.

My Project

In order to provide accommodations for my students, the furniture in our classroom needs to be more kid-friendly. They need options to sit comfortably and allow for movement. The metal chairs in our classroom work for some of my first grade students, but if they had a choice, all of them would choose to to work on a chair that offers flexibility.

Flex furniture would allow students to work more collaboratively with little to no disruption.

These chairs will give students who are constantly squirming a learning environment that better suits their needs. It is a goal of mine to one day transform our classroom to a complete flex furniture room. These chairs would help achieve that.
