My Students

At our school, we strive to treat each other with respect, love, and compassion. Unfortunately, these students are in a high poverty, low-income environment, where all of our students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch. I teach 2nd grade in an underfunded, underprivileged rural setting. My students are faced with some challenges in their home life which includes broken homes and sadness.

My students all have such endearing personalities and motivation to learn.

They always do their personal best in our positive classroom community.

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times, they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. Students almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

Most students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. The comfy floor seats and the beanbag chair will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options.
