Flex Our Thinking Muscles With Some Flexible Seating

My students need Wobble Stools, Balloon Stools, and Balance Balls to use as flexible seating options to help them focus in class.

My Students

My students come from a very diverse community. Some of the students are the first in their families to learn English and are usually the translator for their parents. The students want to learn. In class they enjoy using our class netbooks and for some, this is their only time on a computer all day. My class strives to do better at something every day. Not all of my students are working at grade level, but they do learn something new everyday. My class loves working on hands-on activities. They love working together and really enjoy being able to read. Our school is truly a learning community where students and teachers work together to learn and explore. Our classroom is a gateway to learning but it is driven by the students. My class loves to explore and learn new activities and facts. They use technology as an amazing resource to learn.

My Project

I am striving to create a student centered classroom with choice for everyone. Students need the ability to choose in the classroom. This can be as simple as what type of seat works best for them. My students will have the choice to sit in what type of chair will allow them to focus and work best. Students in my class love to learn, but need to be able to have a choice in class in regards to their work environment.

Students love to learn when they can make a choice how to learn best.

The Wobble Stools, Balloon Chairs, and Exercise balls will allow my students to have a choice in how they want to sit and learn. I want to give my students the best environment possible for them to stay focused and learn. I strive to create a student centered learning environment, and these seating options will allow the students to decide on what seat will work best for the. Flexible seating in my class is the next step in creating a student centered classroom.
