My Students

My students are active, energetic, and hungry for new knowledge! My class is made up of 8 and 9-year-olds who come in every day excited to learn. They each come from various socioeconomic backgrounds with a range of different life experiences. They know the importance of being prepared for life after they finish school. While they are in our classroom, I want to give them voice and choice when it comes to how they best learn. I want to help them by giving them as many seating choices as possible so they are able to do this.

My school has a diverse population, but the students and I have one common goal and that is to prove to everyone that no matter your background, you can be a leader of tomorrow!

My students are coming to me from all different types of homes. Regardless of their backgrounds, they work hard to reach the high expectations we set together. I couldn't be more proud to teach them each and every day!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: low tables with bean bags, lap desks, crate seats, high stools, and chairs with bands. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The product that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The wobble stools are adjustable and will allow students to sit at desk/higher tables but will still allow some movement. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed!

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
