My Students

"What?! How is RELA class almost over? I don't want it to end!" - Actual quote from a fourth grader

To be honest, I didn't expect to hear my students groan when reading class was coming to an end.

But our classroom has become a place where we read challenging texts, explore visual art, and engage in thoughtful discussions. It is a place where every voice is heard. And the students respond to that sense of community, they pick up on my excitement and my love of reading, and they are genuinely interested and motivated to put in the work to become better readers and writers.

I teach reading and language arts to three classes of curious, compassionate, and creative fourth graders. Teaching 75 students means that I encounter a wide variety of needs in my classroom, from reluctant readers who need support to bonafide bookworms who need more of a challenge. No matter their academic needs, ALL of my students need a classroom environment that allows for flexibility, independence, and comfort.

My Project

My students need a variety of comfortable seating options for reading class. On a daily basis, students have time to read and write independently, and they are often uncomfortable sitting at a rigid desk.

Having the Flex-Space floor seating will allow my students to get comfortable so they can do their best work.

Flexible seating allows students to take ownership over their learning environment. My students will make their way to the floor for a variety of activities in class, whether it is whole group, partner work, or just independent reading. Adding more comfortable floor seating will enhance my students' engagement throughout the entirety of reading class.
