My classroom is filled with 22 kindergarteners who are eager to learn. Everyday my students show up with big smiles, looking ahead at what's to come for the day. I want to keep their love of learning alive.
My school is a Title 1 school, where more than 80% of students are on free or reduced lunch.
My goal is to maximize their learning potential through flexible seating options. I want to give them the opportunity to discover how they learn best, make their own choices, and grow as individuals.
“Outside the windows of our classroom is a dynamic, fast-paced, and ever-changing world full of choices. How can we expect our students to solve problems and make choices independently if we constantly solve their problems and make their choices for them?” - Kayla Delzer
Students need to be able to choose where they feel most comfortable learning.
With this project, I will be able to give them more seating options to choose from. By giving students a variety of flexible seating options, they will not only feel physically more comfortable, but it will engage them to learn in a way that actually works for them!
