My Students

My kindergarten students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think and to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to learn new things and to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

My students are creative five-year-olds who are excited about learning and have so much to share!

They are pros on iPads and absolutely love to read! How wonderful it would be if I could give them some comfortable seats to sit on while they read and work on the iPads and some exciting science books to capture their imaginations! With these Calming Colors Soft Seats, students will have a calm, comfortable personal space where they can think, read and solve problems without distractions. Students who are truly engaged in what they are doing learn so much and remember what they learn!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning. During independent work times my students choose a location in the classroom that is quiet and these Calming Colors Soft Seats will give them the comfort that they need to stay on task. Being comfortable is an essential component in motivating them.

When students are given a choice, they usually choose a quiet place where they can work without being distracted, so they are more engaged and do much better work!

The books I chose will be of great interest to my curious kinders. They love to read non-fiction books about animals that are at their level. When they get one of these books in their hands and find a quiet spot to take their Soft Seat, my students' learning will soar!
