My Students

My third grade students are ready to work! Our class consists of 25 students with different academic and physical needs. We love to read and write! The students love to work in small groups and participate in book clubs. The students flourish in a workshop and small group model which moves them around the room as it helps them get their creative juices flowing and energy out. This project would allow ease of movement to create small area work stations. Thank you!

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 at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. 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.

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

The table and chair set will allow students to sit at a higher table but will still allow some movement around the room. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats and the bungee chairs will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

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!
