My Students

My students are hardworking and fun loving Windsor CT kids! Our school is a pre-K to 2nd grade school. My students are looping up to 2nd grade with me so we can continue our exploration of flexible seating! They were introduced to flexible seating using yoga balls, bean bags and tables last year. I removed the desks to help foster a sense of community and team building learning. My students have great social skills and cooperate with each other to really be a successful member of the class.

My Project

Allows students to really own their learning!!

Offering students choices on seats give students the opportunity to be successful learners and understand where they do their very best learning in a classroom.

Starbucks classrooms are a new way to run the classroom providing a comfortable way to sit for optimal learning. As adults we tend to choose a comfortable spot when we settle in for a good book. Why are students any different? Studies are showing that seating choice is making a difference in education. Let's be a part of helping students achieve!

Please help give a variety of options for students to choose. Thank you! My classroom will appreciate your support as well!
