My Students

My classroom is filled with sweet, hardworking students. My class is a diverse group of students in a Title I school. They work to overcome any obstacle they come across on a daily basis.

We work each day to have a positive classroom community.

A classroom full of individuals that care for each other is what we strive for. My students learn from each other everyday. I believe that all of my students are capable of achieving excellence and I make sure that I expect them to do the best they can, everyday.

Flexible seating provides the students with a freedom of choice. It allows the students to be comfortable while learning. This type of seating helps the students to stay engaged on learning for a longer period of time. The movement in flexible seating helps students have more movement than traditional classroom seating,

My Project

I have chosen to have flexible seating in my classroom and my students love it. I feel that allowing the students to have the freedom of choice of what kind of chair they are sitting in creates a more inviting classroom. I chose these types of stools for my classroom because they are a comfortable option.

This type of seating increases student engagement in my classroom.

These stools will allow my students to be in a comfortable seated position which allows movement while learning. I like for my students to feel comfortable and free to move around appropriately in in my classroom.
