My Students

I have the best 6th graders in the world! They come to school each day with smiles on their faces and wanting to learn. They have been through a lot of hardships in their short lives, but they keep perservering.

In my classroom students are encouraged to take risks, make mistakes, and challenge themselves in a safe environment.

I try and build a sense of community and respect, that the students can take with them into the real world. A lot of my students do not have a stable home life, and my classroom is their safe space. I want to provide them will all the tools I can to help them succeed in life.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to choose to the best place to work. Having the choice to pick where and how they sit, empowers students to take charge of their own learning.

Research studies say that physical activity through flexible seating can lead to high academic achievement and also improved overall behavior as well.

The active chairs, wobble cushions, and balance boards will provide some excellent choices for my more active students. They will have the chance to choose between standing, sitting close to the ground, balancing, sitting normally, and more.

My students don't get to make many decisions about their lives, but flexible seating gives them that chance. They will learn how to make the best choice for their learning and take responsibility for the available seating choices.

Thank you for looking at my project and making flexible seating an option in my classroom!
