My Students

Our school is located in a rural area but has an increasingly suburban community surrounding it. There are 25 students in our class; 15 boys and 10 girls. Several ethnicities make up the population as well as a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds.

Everyday we come prepared to do do our very best work; however, this is difficult at times due to the confines of desks and chairs.

Research shows that when children have the ability to move around or choose the way in which they are most comfortable learning that the outcomes are that much greater. We are confined to our desks and chairs and that can be our biggest distraction from learning.

My Project

The Heavy-Duty Organizational Bins, Connect and Store Book Bins, and the 8 Try Organization Station are going to help my students manage their classroom supplies. There are some draw backs with tossing out the traditional student desk. One of those is storage.

Finding places in the classroom for students to put their supplies and textbooks is one of the most challenging parts of implementing a flexible seating arrangement for students.

With the traditional student desk, each child knows exactly where their materials are located, however when those desks are no longer in the classroom teachers have to find alternative places and ways for students to store these items. This is the reason for this project.

Limited cabinet space and not enough cubbies for all students make this project necessary. We need durable materials that will hold our supplies and allow for quick access and easy transportation of materials.
