My Students

All my students deserve the best opportunity to learn.

Some of our students need to be able to move in order to focus.

The various seating options allow the students to sit in my classroom in a way that is most comfortable for them. They are able to change out their seating depending on their personal needs. They come to school every day excited and ready to learn! Many of them come to school from difficult homes and school is their safe place. Our school is 45% socioeconomically disadvantaged, and these kids are hard workers who always strive to do their best! It is my job to help them reach their full potential.

My Project

For several years I have researched the benefits of flexible seating in the classroom. The studies I have found support the need for a child to have the option to sit and write in various ways. ADD and ADHD is on the rise, and all of our students (not just ADD or ADHD) need an opportunity to wiggle, move, and LEARN. The variety of seating I have chosen will increase their options and allow them to have so much FUN in the classroom while they are learning!

Flexible seating can make ALL the difference because it gives my students a change to move, feel comfortable, and ready to learn all they can in 2nd grade.

The seating I am requesting will greatly impact their ability to focus and learn.
