My Students

The students in this project are from two different fourth grade classrooms. These students are a fantastic group of energetic fourth graders.Our students come from a wide variety of socio-economic backgrounds. Many of our families have to make hard choices on how to spend the money that they do have coming in. Should they spend it on school supplies, supplemental material, or food and bills? With this in mind, you would not know it by walking through our halls, students are engaged, hard working, and usually wearing a smile. They want to be involved in school and feel safe in their environment. They enjoy being comfortable in their work space. They come in daily eager to learn and want to excel in school.

My Project

Let's face it, chairs aren’t comfortable for seven hours a day. As a result, I have been conducting research on the effectiveness of flexible seating. My classroom needs what is best for students. Having the flexibility to move around while working and be comfortable at the same time is important for my students to stay focused.

Having exercise balls, stools, comfy chairs, lowered tables with rugs will allow them to move but, also stay focused.

This will optimize students time learning and minimize their breaks. Flexible seating will increase on task behavior and deplete excess energy. Please help me get my students the seating they need.
