My Students

I teach 5th-grade math to four different classes. They are an AMAZING group of 5th graders that are hard-working and love being challenged. They are my heroes! Many of them come from low-income families and face challenges both in and out of the classroom.

They come into my classroom ready to learn, and I want to help them by providing them with flexible seating so they can stay motivated and focused during instruction and independent work.

My students have a lot of energy. They need to be able to move to release that energy, instead of being stuck in a traditional desk with an attached chair!

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. Having these bean bag chairs in my classroom will allow my students the option of being able to move to release built-up energy. 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.

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