My Students

As a teacher at a rural, Title I school, my students already come to third grade with opinions about school. Some of my students come loving school, while others are very open about how they do not care to be here at all. It is my goal to make sure that by the end of the year, all of my students enjoy school.

My class would benefit from seating options that will allow them a comfortable learning environment for collaboration activities.

They need a variety of different seating options that will allow them to explore and collaborate in a comfortable environment. We do lots of critical thinking activities, and these seats will allow them a comfortable environment for those challenging tasks.

As a school, the administration has encouraged the use of instructional activities with a focus on critical thinking. Our teachers are beginning to collaborate in an attempt to transition students to active learners who are no longer simply consuming information.

My Project

Flexible seating has become a mainstay in my classroom. My students love to pick where they sit every day and enjoy picking what they sit on while they work. It is not uncommon to see multiple students on the floor of my classroom, standing, or wobbling on stools while they are working.

My students need additional flexible seating items so my class can continue to work on self evaluating their best learning environment.

I have seen a huge improvement in work because of flexible seating. Not only are my students more comfortable at school, but they are also taking more ownership of their work because of our conversations regarding flexible seating.

I am almost to my goal of having a completely "chairless" classroom. My students who are still forced to sit on a chair never complain, but your generosity would help me become closer to making my classroom completely "chairless."
