My Students

I teach a class of 22 kindergarten students. My students start the school year eager to learn so many new things! They are all looking forward to making new friends and are so excited for their journey in school. They love becoming readers, writers, scientists and mathematicians! Although the students that I work with come from different backgrounds, and have very different learning styles, they all want to do their best, love to spread joy and make others happy and feel a great deal of pride when they are successful!

My Project

When students are comfortable, they are more able to learn. Kindergarten students have a lot of energy, and sometimes have a hard time with things like sitting in a regular chair, or sitting "criss cross" on the rug.

By giving my students a variety of seating options such as stools, donut balls, soft zone floor cushions and wobble chairs, they are able to pick a space that works best for them, and ultimately are better able to focus and complete tasks more successfully throughout the day.

Many of the seating options allow students to move while learning, making the task of sitting less difficult for our youngest learners.
