My Students

My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds. We are comprised primarily of Military families, and English Language Learners. Students in our school are ethnically and culturally diverse, speaking a multitude of languages, and coming into our school at a variety of learning abilities. Due to our diverse population and military families, students move frequently and enter and exit at various times through the school year. Our classroom is looking to become a class full of 21st century learners who use technology and hands-on experiments where learning is not taught by lectures, but by student exploration.

My Project

Flexible seating gives students the feeling of being empowered by having the choice of where they sit and what they sit on.

Having a variety of seating options allows students to change their location and positions as needed to help them learn at their best and focus throughout the day.

Students need to move while learning, but they also need time to complete their work. With flexible seating they are allowed to wobble, rock, bounce, lean or stand, which increases oxygen flow to the brain, blood flow, and core strength which in turn helps to keep their minds more alert and focused. Having flexible seating encourages students to find their best spot to stay focused and productive.

With this project my students will have more options to choose from, like an Adjustable Height Wobble Stool for our Stand Up Desk, a Gaiam Adjustable height Balance Ball Stool for our Standing or Seated Desks, 2 Kore ADJUSTABLE height Active Sitting for standing desks, and 2 Gaiam Balance Discs for floor seats or traditional chairs. Wobble stools give the movement that students need to stay focused without the need of a ball. These stools have a curved base that allows for movement. These stools are also adjustable in height to fit individual needs. Balance discs allow a second choice for sitting on the hard floor or chair. It gives the concept of a ball, but it can be put in any chair. Having so many options gives me a chance to see what works best in our classroom as well as helps other teachers in our school to see the options that are out there and decide if they too want to change their room to flexible seating.

I look forward to the many changes that this project will bring.
