My Students

My students love learning through hands-on activities and being active and moving around the classroom. They love creating and being in charge of their own learning. Each one of my students love learning, although the way they learn best differs greatly from student to student.

Some students are visual learners while others are kinesthetic learners.

Others love learning while sitting on the carpet while others love standing while doing their work. Each student is different and each student learns differently. That is why I am hoping to provide them with the classroom environment they need to succeed.

My Project

My students are all unique and each student learns in a different way! By providing them with flexible seating options, they will be able to choose which way they will learn best and they will be in charge of their own learning. The Flex Mobile Seating desk will allow the students the opportunity to stand while learning. I believe this will benefit a lot of my students who need a different environment other than the regular desk and chairs that are provided. The wobble chairs will also help my students release some energy while learning and it will help the students that are unable to sit still during classroom instruction.
