My Students

Funding this project will help create an active learning math classroom for approximately 60 7th grade math students. The students are of all ability and socio economic status but every student can benefit from flexible seating. Flexible seating increases student engagement which is directly correlated with increasing student learning.

Flexible seating/active classrooms have many benefits including:

Choice

Physical Health

Comfort

Community

Collaboration

Commitment to learning

Communication

Sensory Input

Fun

Flexible seating gives students the outlet to fidget as needed while remaining focused on learning and not disrupting others. Flexible seating also gives students more freedom of choice which allows them to be more invested in their learning.

My Project

Students today have the need to move as they learn. Funding this project will give my students the choice of having another way to sit and engage in classroom learning. Wobble chairs create better posture and allow students to wiggle and move during class without being disruptive.

The wobble chairs will be used daily by 3 math classes and one remediation class.

The chairs will give students the freedom to choose a method of seat that helps them becomes more engaged and active learners. Students who are actively engaged and invested in their learning are more likely to succeed. Success is the main goal!
