Our classroom is small and our desks and chairs are bulky. Every day, we are cramming 31 fifth graders into our class and don't have much physical space to learn, move, and grow. My students learn best when they are able to move. Sitting at conventional desks and in uncomfortable chairs cause the students to get restless and fidgety, thus affecting their attention and learning. Research shows that students learn more when they are comfortable. Comfortable kids learn more! Comfortable kids are happy kids, and happy kids learn more, too! With this furniture, students will have the opportunity to create a physical space for themselves that fosters learning and makes them feel valued and wanted. This furniture will show students that our class is their class.
