My Students

This year is my 11th year teaching kindergarten and first grade. I am a looping teacher, teaching kindergarten every other year and following students into first grade for consistency and community building. Ours is a neighborhood school in a metropolitan school district. My 21 kindergarten students next year will be in a school of about 500 elementary students total, ranging from 4K up to fifth grade.

They will be coming into kindergarten as caterpillars and moving onto first grade as butterflies.

My Project

These seating options could be utilized in a variety of ways within my classroom. I love the flexibility of them. I plan to normally house them around a table that is lower. I could also have kids move them to a carpet area so that they are sitting in a mini circle for a small group work time.

I have learned that students love the ability to choose where they work because it makes them more productive and focused.

These seats will give my students more options of where to sit. My students love our mini couch and our very low table with cushions. I know they will love these stools just as much.
