Choice Seating in Second Grade

My Students

I am a first-year teacher in a high poverty/low-income school. Students that are 7 and 8 years old are full of energy and all learn differently. I want my students to have the choice of where they would like to sit and what works best for them. My students spend 7 hours a day in the classroom. For them to grasp the material throughout the day they need to be comfortable in what fits them best. Some learn best by standing up or sitting in a stool that wobbles and even sitting on the floor. I would like my students to have the option of flexible seating to encourage a deeper learning environment.

This project will give my students flexibility in choosing what seat works best for them to learn at.

My Project

The table and wobble chairs will help students decide what seating works best for their type of learning. By the students choosing where they want to sit increases their motivation to learn. In having these materials in the classroom I will be able to add more choices of where they would like to sit throughout the day.

Giving the students the choice of where they want to sit and the type of seating makes the students more responsible for their learning.

Every student learns differently so giving them the choice will help each student target the best way they learn. This makes students more successful in their learning and can help with the behavior in the classroom. When students choose their own seat it really makes them feel like it is theirs. The table gives students more room to spread out and have their own space to focus on.

By donating you will help students have the choice of what seating will help them learn best. Students need to learn at a young age how to empower themselves to be more outstanding in the classroom and this will help start that.

I still will have some traditional desk in the classroom because some students might want that as an option. Having different seating options will increase concentration and motivation to get through the day.
