My Students

Our rural school is made up of some great students who love to be engaged and hands-on with their learning. We are working on teaching them to be well rounded individuals and be accepting of individual differences.

Our classroom motto is simple, "Fair is everybody getting what they need to be successful!" As we begin our co-teaching journey, we are working together to create a classroom which will reach all of our learners.

We wish to create an accepting culture within our classroom, hopefully carrying out into the real world.

My Project

Students who are comfortable while learning seem more engaged and focused. These flexible seating options provide additional choices for students to take ownership in their learning. Students are currently able to choose where they want to sit during instructional time. With the addition of the ball chairs and the lap desks, students will now also have the choice of how they sit.

The ball chairs and lap desks will allow for students to choose what works best for them.

The ball chairs will be great for students who need a bit of movement in their day while still providing support and stability. Lap desks will let students to choose to sit on the floor while keeping the ability of note taking, computer work, and activities. These items will add some great flexible seating choices for our students!
