My Students

My students are energetic, creative and full of questions and ideas! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that will allow them to use critical thinking to find solutions!

They come to school each day ready to try new things and take risks in order to grow both personally and academically, they always give 100%!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. I want to incorporate a wider variety of learning strategies and alternative seating options to ensure that all my students’ needs are met, right where they are!

They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they have the opportunity to choose a location in the classroom that works for them.

Currently my students can choose to work in a variety of locations in our room such as sitting around the room or at desks or tables with clipboards.

Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. These will be extremely beneficial for some students that just need to get the wiggles out. They can also be used as an alternative chair if needed! The comfy floor seats and the chairs will allow for additional comfortable floor seating options. They are lightweight and can be easily used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
