My Students

Learning is not "one-size-fits-all." Students learn in the best way that they know how. I have a diverse classroom of 30 fourth-grade students who all learn in their own way. Some students are first generation Americans from India, Fiji, China, Japan, El Salvador, and Indonesia and put a lot of pressure on themselves to excel academically.

If students can move and manipulate, they can learn!

The brain, mind, and body participate in the learning process in separate ways and are different from student to student. Environmental factors play a role in student learning, too. A student may learn better sitting on the floor or in a bean bag compared to a chair. Some students benefit from fidgeting and they need space to do so; a wiggle seat would be perfect for that.

I would like to update my traditional classroom set up of desks and chairs into a space that is inviting and comfortable for all students. I am eager to provide my students with a variety of flexible seating and learning space options. This is especially important for my students that have learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD.

My Project

The materials that I am requesting for my students will help them keep their bodies moving, while keeping their minds focused on what I am teaching and their daily assignments. Flexible seating will be a great tool for my students to continue to grow and learn in a way that is best for them since they constantly need to be moving. I am striving to create a classroom where all of my students can be successful no matter what challenges stand in their way. I have seen how successful flexible seating can be with other classrooms in my school, and I know that it can do the same for my students!

Flexible seating produces effective and productive students.

This will benefit my students with choice, physical health, comfort, community, collaboration and sensory input.
