Encourage Reading Through Flexible Seating!

My students need flexible seating to improve focus while staying on task for extended periods of time for independent reading.

My Students

We are located in Hinesville Georgia outside of historical Savannah. My students are largely influenced by the military life and culture that neighboring Fort Stewart brings. We are a Title one school with over 70% of the students on free/ reduced lunch.

My students are vibrant and want to be heard; they want to matter in this life, and they want to succeed.

They have dreams of being doctors and lawyers, military men and women, fire fighters and police officers. They are determined to succeed. My students often come with little or no supplies, and some do not have access to appropriate reading material to bring up their reading levels. Every second counts and my teaching is determined directly by each individual student's needs.

My students are 5th graders who are classified as struggling and needing a little extra help (Early Intervention Program) in the core content. I work different segments throughout the day of reading and math to provide small group and technology based reading and math programs to the students to bolster student progress.

My Project

I want to use flexible seating to allow students to choose comfortable seating during reading times. Avid readers are a key to success, sitting comfortably encourages readers to continue and stay with the story. Fidgeting and moving to readjust makes students lose track of the story line, often causing memory lapses on key details and story plot. I want my beginning readers to find success by allowing the children to be able to get out of the traditional desk, adjust the flexible seats to their heights and their comfort levels to ensure students the best reading experience. The longer they stay reading, the better chance I have of closing the gap in reading for my students. Flexible seating is a must.
