Fabulous Flexible Seating

My students need options for flexible seating. These kids love to move and sit in cozy spots of their own choosing.

My Students

My students are movers and shakers. They are enthusiastic about a wide range of topics, and love hands on experiences. My students come from a wide range of backgrounds, and previous learning experiences, so when they come to my room, one of my most important goals is to give everyone as much access to a subject as possible, which in many cases means exposing them to experiences for the first time. We do this through a variety of mediums, both hands on, and through videos, through trial and error, and creative collaboration.

My students all have a desire to succeed, but many have had difficulty experiencing success in the past for one reason or another, so we celebrate every step in the right direction, every new level reached, and every brave moment, even and sometimes most especially, the failures, as they are the building blocks for success.

Success drives the will to persevere. Without these celebrations, many of my students would have given up on learning, given up on themselves. But we cheer each other on the most when we are brave enough to share mistakes, as then not just the individual learns from them, but the whole group.

My Project

When students are comfortable, they are happier and more willing and able to give their best effort. Giving students choice in their seating options will make them more comfortable, and gives them a sense of ownership over their day and their work. I am excited to offer the opportunity for my students to be able to sit with these great cushions, so that they can find the place in the room that works best for them.

The wobble cushions will help those who can't sit still, to focus and attend to their leaning, and the seat cushions will enable students to comfortably read, write, or study anywhere around the room.
