My Students

My lovely students are in the 5th grade. All of my students are special ed, and are diagnosed with a variety of disabilities. They are all below grade level and require frequent movement breaks. One of the changes that I want to make in my classroom this coming year is to put flexible seating in. Last year with my donors choose project I got a few alternative seats and my students LOVED them. This year with more students I would love to be able to have more seating options for them to choose from.

My Project

Being in my second year, I have learned quite a few things about the type of students I teach. One of the main things I have learned is they totally dislike regular seats! Once I introduced alternative seating to my class last year a light bulb switched in their heads and it was like a whole new world opened up to them! Children need options if they are going to learn to their fullest potential. As an adult I have such a hard time sitting in one place, in an uncomfortable chair for even small amounts of times, change that feeling into a mind of a child and having to sit there for hours on end learning huge concepts, anyone would dislike that. The flexible seating gives them the chance to choose to learn!
