My Students

My students are the best, hands down. They are funny, kind, and loving. A lot of my students walk to school everyday, even through the rain, because they are trying to get their education. Once at school, most students try and work hard.

School can be difficult, especially when sitting still in a chair for most of the day.

Many of my students have ADHD, low attention spans, or even just the wiggles. I want to open up my classroom into a space that they feel like they are in control of, where they can take responsibility.

I am hoping to be able to give back to my students, and show them that there are so many generous and kind people in the world!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices on their own. During the school day, my students are sitting through 4 hours of direct instructional classroom time, which can be very hard for a 9 year old. I want to give my students the opportunity to come in each morning and sit where they feel comfortable and ready to learn.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a comfortable seat in the classroom.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices.

The wobble chairs will be used for students who need more, but also need to let their wiggles out. The inflatable balls will be for students who show that they are balanced, and maybe need less wiggling, and more control over their body to focus.

Thank you for helping my students learn more effectively, and build their responsibility through flexible seating!
