We are a classroom of diverse learners. My students love to learn and are eager to improve their skills. They are particularly enthusiastic about math right now! As their teacher, I aim to foster their curiosity and love of learning.
For many of my students, learning in a typical classroom setting can be a challenge.
We are in a very disparate socio-economic school district where many of my students face challenges at home that affect their ability to engage in a structured learning environment. While school is a safe, stable place for them, it can be difficult to meet their many individual needs academically and emotionally. With resources, encouragement, and affirmation, I strive to build the efficacy my students need to succeed.
My students come to school full of life and ready to learn! Just like adults get tired of sitting in hard chairs all day, students do too! They need more flexible/comfortable seating options to enhance student engagement and learning. Studies show that students learn better when they are physically active and comfortable. Students are able to bounce on an exercise ball, sit, stand, kneel, etc.
This project would significantly help my students stay engaged in our learning throughout the day.
All of these options will give my students the opportunity to sit comfortably and move around while they are learning. I want them to feel comfortable and at home in our classroom. I cannot wait to see all of the things we can do with flexible seating!
